I am a graduate student at American University pursuing an MS in Data Science. Through the AU SPA Combined Master’s Program, I completed my undergraduate degree in Political Science in May 2022, and will finish my graduate degree in May 2023.

My work experience includes interning for Senator Booker during the Spring 2022 semester, interning for 314 Action during the Fall 2021 semester, assisting an AU professor with research over the summer of 2021, and assisting statistics classes as a Supplemental Instruction Leader through AU’s Academic Support and Access Center from Spring 2020 through Spring 2021.

As a part of the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program, I have completed two research projects, one on the environmental effects of chemicals and one on the effects of marijuana on the adolescent mind and body and subsequently, the most effective methods of in-school drug prevention programs. I have created a website alongside a team of five other students that provides resources for sustainable cooking and cleaning, emphasizing the importance of sustainability during the COVID-19 pandemic. I have also implemented a social action project based on my marijuana research in the form of an updated drug prevention curriculum at my old high school.

As a member of the Lincoln Scholars Program, I have been reading and analyzing the works of the greatest political theorists, classic and modern, and engaging in philosophical discussion with my peers. I am also in the American University Chamber Choir, practicing social action through music in the performance of works like Craig Hella Johnson’s Considering Matthew Shepard.
