Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am a 21 years old and a third-year student at the University of Washington Bothell majoring in Culture, Literature & the Arts and Media & Communication Studies with a minor in Educational Studies. I am extremely passionate about literature, social justice, and educational equity, and I have worked in several positions where those passions (and some more of mine) can shine. I am currently a research intern at the Center On Reinventing Public Education (CRPE), where I work on data analysis and produce blog posts around the COVID-19 pandemic's effects on aspects of K-12 education such as the digital divide, racial equity practices, and the unhoused student crisis. I am applying to M.A. and Ph.D. programs in English Literature, Cultural Studies, and related disciplines next autumn in pursuit of a career in higher education, and ultimately, I aim to work in academia and fight for widespread educational reform through meaningful teaching and research practices.

Interesting Factoid

I am a freelance photographer, musician, and graphic designer. I've been playing music for 10 years and writing it for around 3. I've been doing photography and graphics since high school, and currently do them for a lot of clubs I'm involved in at my university.
