I decided that I wanted to be a graphic designer at age 12, and began teaching myself how to use design software and finding opportunities to enhance my skills. Working with several political and nonprofit organizations showed me that I could use my design, leadership, and organizational skills to help communities around me and push for a safe, sustainable, and equitable world. 

Currently, I am a sophomore at George Washington University, pursuing a BFA in Graphic Design and a minor in Human Services and Social Justice. In my free time, I enjoy playing Ultimate Frisbee, gardening at our on-campus garden, and engaging in political and social justice work. 

I aspire to work as a graphic designer or exhibition designer at a nonprofit organization or design firm that aligns with my values of equity, compassion, and mutualism. I have experience designing in several contexts. Through my work with the Sunrise Movement, TEDxYouth @ Columbia, South Carolina, the Arlington-Teosinte Sister City Movement, and J Street U, I have seen the importance of a strong visual message in the fight for social change. I also have experience in animation, logo design, clothing design, and video editing.
