I am an American University student majoring in journalism and political science. In addition to my classes, I work as a team leader for DC Reads, a city-wide collaboration working to raise literacy rates in our nation’s capitol. I’m also currently interning with Democratic Majority for Israel, working on their communications team.

My passion for journalism and public policy, as well as a growing curiosity about data analysis, has led me to pursue an interest in solutions journalism. This approach to journalism seeks to report on the responses to issues, going beyond the issues themselves. I am fascinated by which policies and programs work, for whom, and why.
