Payge relocated to Columbia from a small town outside of Annapolis, Maryland in 2019. As an undergraduate, she attended Salisbury University where she studied Communications and East Asian Studies, and she is a 2018 graduate of American University's International Training and Education M.A program. As her studies suggest, Payge is very interested in International Education. In fact, her interest in fellowships advising came from her personal experience applying for multiple international exchange awards. Payge was a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in South Korea for the 2016-2017 grant year and a TUSA Scholar in 2014. While in graduate school, she worked as a program assistant at AU's fellowships office, volunteered for international student programs, and attended numerous international education conferences. In her free time she enjoys trying new restaurants and coffee shops, taking long walks, and obsessing over all things Disney and Star Wars.
