Who I Am  

A Little About Me


I'm going into my senior year at the University of Washington and presently applying to Master's programs in pursuit of a career in secondary or post-secondary education. I have varied experience in teaching, student development, journalism, education research, and faith formation, and I want to foster foster not only critical thinking, but also delight, passion, creativity, and interpersonal connections in students. This desire brought me to pursue various extracurricular activities where I could start building those skills as a college student. 


Interesting Factoid

I created and published a zine with friends in college.
