Ingrid graduated with honors from Smith College with a major in Government and a certificate in International Relations. During her time at Smith, she was actively representing non-traditional aged students at the Student Government Association Senate. In her junior year, Ingrid studied abroad at the Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland in both French and English.

During her semester abroad in Switzerland, she also interned at Plan International, an international NGO that advocates for girls and young women’s rights. Ingrid represented the organization at the United Nations Headquarters in Geneva by speaking at the 37th and 38th sessions of the UN Human Rights Council. During her internship, Ingrid created and developed a training platform to guide NGOs and civil society organizations on how to engage with the UN mechanisms. This platform was translated into 4 languages and it has been used in 10 different countries within the Asian and African continents.

As one of the Class of 2019 Commencement speakers, Ingrid addressed her fellow classmates on Ivy Day, one of the oldest traditions held at Smith College for graduation weekend. Awarded the prestigious Jean Fine Spahr Fellowship for academic excellence, Ingrid intends to continue her studies either through pursuing a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where she has already been accepted, or going to law school.
