Kwan has put the same dedication she showed when she won two Olympic medals into her latest goal: earning a master’s degree in international affairs. “I’m not a Nobel Peace Prize winner, I’m a skater getting my master’s — no big deal,” Kwan, 30, tells us. She attends graduate school full time at Tufts University’s Fletcher School. She also serves on the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, a position she was appointed to in June 2010 by President Obama.
