Although Kilbride is still in her mid-20s, her resume shows she has worked or interned for a number of organizations whose stated goals are to promote human rights, justice and world peace.
They include a 2010 internship at the Ayenda Foundation, which promotes the rights of women and children in Afghanistan and operates an orphanage in that country's Bamyan province.
Later that year, she interned for a group called Penal Reform International, which focuses on prisoner justice and human rights in the Arab world.
In August 2011, she took a 10-month internship working for the U.S. Department of State on projects to strengthen youth services, combat HIV/AIDS and promote intercultural dialogue in Uganda, according to the LinkedIn profile.
Kilbride has a bachelor's degree in women's studies and Arabic from Georgetown University, where she graduated in 2012.
She had been working in Bahrain since August 2012 as an English teacher for children at a bilingual school called Little Starz School, the profile says.
She also has been working as a research assistant for the International Institute for Strategic Studies, a London-based peace organization.
According to her Muftah.org biography, Kilbride plans to pursue a master's degree in human rights at the London School of Economics starting in the fall.
