About Me

Born outside Chicago but raised in New Jersey, I currently live in the New York City Metropolitan area. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies from the School of International Studies at American University in addition to minoring in political science at the School of Public Affairs. My concentration for my International Studies degree is Justice, Ethics, & Human Rights as well as National Security & Foreign Policy. I also have an Undergraduate Certificate in Advanced Leadership Studies from the SPA Leadership Program. I am hoping to further my education by attending law school in pursuit of an International Law degree as International Human Rights Law is where I intend to land. 

At AU I was in the School of Public Affairs Leadership Program where students are selected to study and develop leadership skills through advanced practical training and by implementing social action projects in local areas of need. In my sophomore year I conducted research on how improving world language programs in public schools within the United States would benefit students and implemented my research question into a social action project where I worked with the ACTFL’s Lead with Languages which focuses on supporting the teaching and learning of world languages.  My freshman year my issue group studied chemicals and the effects they have on our environment and raised money for the nonprofit organization the Environmental Working Group which focuses on research and advocacy in helping the environment.

At my university I also was involved in a campus magazine, Her Campus, where I contributed by writing thoughtful articles about current issues and topics as well as taking photographs for other articles and contributing to graphic design. I was also a member of Phi Alpha Delta which is a professional law fraternity dedicated to service, liberty, and equal justice.  I took part in volunteer work around Washington, DC. The American University chapter disbanded in late 2020 as a commitment to maintaining better standards.

In the spring semester of 2022 I was fortunate enough to be able to study abroad in Madrid, Spain where I developed my Spanish language skills. Throughout my study abroad I was also able to learn much about different cultures, languages, and regions in Europe. This experience not only helped to improve my Spanish language skills but helped me to grow as a student by learning through travel and independence.

Throughout university I was able to maintain my job at The George Town Club where I worked in guest & member relations. I was responsible for various administrative, receptionist, and training duties while also warmly greeting guests in a hostess manner and developing relationships resulting in guest and team satisfaction. At The George Town Club I was able to develop my interpersonal skills such as communication and teamwork and implement my leadership skills.
