Born and raised in Nashville, TN, I graduated from New York University in 2016, having studied Literature (Drama) and Spanish. After graduation, I moved to Hargeisa, Somaliland in East Africa, where I taught Pre-Algebra and English in a college preparatory school.
Since returning, I was named a Princeton fellow for Spanish studies, working for the Carmen Pampa Fund as an External Relations Coordinator.
In my free time, I enjoy playing the violin, brushing up on my Arabic, and video editing.
