Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I'm from Blue Bell, a suburb of Philadelphia, PA. I love living in Philadelphia, but I'm so grateful that I've had the opportunity to escape the freezing cold winters and spend four years in sunny California. I attend the University of Southern California as a Global Studies major with a minor in Cinematic Arts. My love of travel lead me to my major, as I have always had a deep interest in learning about unfamiliar cultures and places. Specifically, I enjoy learning about the different ways in which people approach the same problems (For example: governing, religion, gender norms, cooking). Portraying these differences and similarities through film is also something I am passionate about.
