Eshe is a human rights professional who is passionate about partnering with organizations to increase their communications capacity. She holds an undergraduate degree in Government and Politics from the University of Maryland, College Park with a double minor in Global Poverty and French Studies. During her time as an MSc Human Rights student at the London School of Economics and Political Science, she focused her master’s research on how the rise of cross-border sex trafficking after humanitarian disasters impacts NGOs’ responses to crises.
Eshe was previously a research associate at the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) for visiting international fellows, which gave her the opportunity to work with grassroots organizations on democracy promotion projects across the developing world. At NED, she wrote and edited reports and handbooks on health-related projects in Saudi Arabia and Zimbabwe, as well as co-authored a Washington Post article on the judicial system in Guatemala. Most recently, she was working in Thailand on communications strategy for a Burmese political prisoner organization. Advocating on behalf of stronger public health policies in Burmese prisons led her to pursue work more closely related to global health initiatives.
