One Sentence About Me  

"If not me, who. If not now, when." - Emma Watson

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born and raise in the Portland area! I have grow up volunteering and serving my community. Throughout high school I earned numerous academic honors, was involved in athletics, and lead multiple clubs and organizations. In college, I plan to continue to volunteer in academic and social settings. I hope to seek out and take advantage of programs including work study, internships, greek life, and study abroad opportunities. I am seeking a degree in business management with minors in film studies and Spanish. In addition, I plan to continue my education into graduate school where I aspire to study nonprofits and public policy. With a career in public policy focused on nonprofit development and management, I will target underserved demographics in need. To blend my other interests with this goal in mind, I hope to produce films as a means of spreading awareness, happiness and inciting curiosity, featuring those whose stories often go unseen or are underrepresented in mainstream media. My dream for these films would be that the proceeds go back to the communities and needs which are highlighted. Ultimately, both for myself and others, I plan to dedicate my life’s work to service.
