I was raised in two completely different cultures; thus, at a young age I knew in order to be successful I needed to expand my knowledge and gain as many life experiences as possible. I completed my undergraduate degree in Global Studies with a minor in Human Rights at the University of Washington. During my time in college I had the opportunity to study abroad in Rome, Italy. Previously, I worked as a lead mentor for an AmeriCorps program, a campus Diversity Programmer and an academic administrative assistant.
My varied educational experiences and career opportunities have enhanced my understanding of the importance of higher education. As a result, my professional goal is to work with youth in transformational educational organizations. I want to help youth understand the significance of knowledge and help them take advantage of their educational resources and rights. Aside from my professional life, I adore trying out different kinds of food and being outdoors. If not eating, I usually spend my free time hiking and camping with my dog Charlie.
