About Me

Hi! I am a freshman in the American University Honors Program! I plan to major in Political Science and minor in Spanish Language Studies. Additionally, I am a member of the SPA Leadership Program and am working toward a certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies. As part of the Leadership Program, I currently working on a social action project to address sexual assault on campus. I work for American’s Office of Sustainability as a Sustainability Peer Educator, better known as a “Green Eagle”. I conduct research on student lifestyle and implement programs to encourage sustainable behaviors! I also blog for AU College Democrats. I look forward to taking advantage of everything this university and city has to offer over the next few years!
