More About Me
I love to share my passion for learning with others and am eager to show that learning can be fun and exciting. Growing up, I was always too shy to ask questions in class and didn’t know how to reach out for help when I needed it. Since, I have transformed into an active participant who leads classroom discussions and is fearlessly inquisitive. I want to help other students reach their full academic potential by providing a learning environment where they feel comfortable and confident.

While at Northwood High School, I ran varsity cross country and track for four years and was a scholar athlete and captain. Additionally, I had a GPA of 3.9 and ACT of 33. I took a variety of AP courses, including AP World History (AP score-5), AP Environmental Science (AP score-5), AP Literature (AP score-4), AP Government, and AP Statistics. As a Berger Scholar at Claremont Mckenna College, I have been funded to pursue internships in Peru, Singapore, and New York, and have a range of experience related to sustainability and the non-profit sector. I also had the opportunity to visit Vietnam and Thailand twice and co-author a chapter in an environmental science textbook as an EnviroLab Asia fellow. Currently, I am working with the United Nations on water scarcity projects and am the manager of the Risk and Resilience Team at the Roberts Environmental Center.
At CMC, I have had the opportunity to teach science, sustainability, and Spanish at local elementary schools. In Spain, where I studied abroad, I also taught English at an elementary school nearby. Although the majority of my teaching experience has been with younger students, I am eager to tutor students of all ages. For high schoolers, I am more than happy to give college and career advice. As I am deeply interested in international relations, and more specifically, the intersection between the environment and security, I am eager to tutor students in this field. For folks with emerging interests in international institutions, international strategic development, or defense/security, I am your girl!
Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience
Throughout highschool, I volunteered with Assisteens (a local charity organization) and spearheaded philanthropic events as president of Operation Hero, a club I founded dedicated to active duty members and veterans. At Claremont Mckenna, I design and teach science lessons to elementary schoolers with Claremont's Science Bus club. As president of Claremont Mckenna's sustainability club, I lead eco-friendly initiatives on campus and volunteer at local community gardens and environmental fairs.
