Kyle Aloof (Uganda)


Kyle Aloof

Kyle is a master’s student at Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University where he focuses on conflict & development, international economic development, and international nongovernmental organizations. Prior to Bush, Kyle spent several months in Honduras during the Coronavirus pandemic teaching English to students and adults and building educational computer activities. Prior to his experience in Honduras, Kyle spent the summer of 2019 in Kroo Bay, Sierra Leone teaching English and math at the We Yone Child Foundation Primary School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Editing, Writing, and Media from Florida State University and a minor in International Affairs. During his undergraduate, he served as President of the university Rotaract Club, Secretary of Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society, and Treasurer of the Caring & Helping in Community Service (C.H.I.C.S) Club. Kyle is an avid traveler and has visited a dozen countries in the last three years. Some of his favorites include Tunisia, Guatemala, Turkey, and Israel. One of his proudest accomplishments is being awarded a $25,000 grant from an essay writing competition and using the entirety of the funds to build a library/children’s center in Kroo Bay, Sierra Leone. Kyle is very much looking forward to working with GDPU in Uganda and learning more about the important work they do.
