Hannah Johnstone is an alumna of the GSE, where she studied International and Comparative Education and graduated in June 2020. She is currently working at the REAP Center at the Freeman Spogli Institute and plans to move to China in the future.

Johnstone recommends having a designated area that separates the work-space from the non-workspace, keeping close contact with professors and colleagues, and being open and honest about your needs. These practices, along with an organized schedule and designated work times, have helped her prepare for a more productive quarter.
