I am pursuing a J.D. at Yale Law School and a Masters in Law and Diplomacy at The Fletcher School, where I am pursuing my interests in public international law and food law. At Yale Law School, I have worked as a first-year editor on the Yale Journal of International Law, assisted a professor with research for an upcoming book on immigration issues, and worked as part of legal teams addressing asylee deportations and refugee visas.
Prior to YLS, I attended Sarah Lawrence College, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts and focusing on anthropology and community development. During my time at school, I was an English as a Second Language teacher for Central American migrants and Sudanese refugees. While I was a student, I also taught theater to low-income elementary school children in Yonkers and worked extensively with Aboriginal Australian youth on educational development projects. Teaching is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done and I love to help students realize how much they can accomplish.
In my spare time, I play Irish and American folk songs on ukulele, bake as many pastries as possible, and watch food documentaries.
