Clint Shoemake

is a graduate of Tufts University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. In 2012, he interned in Washington DC for the U.S. Department of State where he worked in the Office of the Coordinator for Cuban Affairs. Clint is currently a diplomat in the United States Foreign Service.

When we asked Clint how CMT helped prepare him for life, he responded, “I would like to think that my role as the Munchkin Barrister in The Wizard of Oz (2001) sparked my interest in international law and that walking my dog across the stage as the dogcatcher in Annie (2005) gave me a better appreciation for public servants. CMT made me a more well-rounded person. Part of the worldwide availability of service that comes with being a diplomat is being able to adapt to new scenarios, to quickly learn new skills, and to work with all kinds of people. These are all things I first learned from CMT.”
