My Roles & Responsibilities
SELECTED PROFESSIONAL HISTORY
Below, you will find a collection of my most relevant experiences. If you’d like references or additional information for any of these roles, please email me.
I have worked in several fields, both part-time and full-time. After graduation, I joined Teach For America and taught elementary school students for three years.
Now, my interests, both professional and academic, center on conflict mediation, peacebuilding, and counterterrorism, with an emphasis on innovative solutions centered on individual's narratives.
Above, you will find an image from a ceremony at Syracuse University for the 2016 Edward R. Murrow Press Fellows.
Where I Am. Where I’m Going.
I am a Public Diplomacy master's student pursuing degrees in International Relations and Public Relations. With these degrees, I seek to find employment in conflict resolution, negotiation, and mediation. I want to connect my experience working with at-risk students to my international focus to find innovative solutions to diplomatic conflict using research-based methods.
I am especially interested in uniting people globally through gastrodiplomacy or other emerging, alternative fields to traditional methods.
I am willing to work with all parties involved to find a solution that is mutually beneficial.
