Bio

I am a member of the class of 2014 at Stanford University, considering in majoring in International Relations and Science, Technology, and Society. I am primarily interested in the intersection of history, media studies, and policy, especially the effects of information technology on social movements and cultural memory. I have worked in Liberia, leading a creative expression and community-building program for teenage girls, and I’m intrigued by gender issues in peace-building and conflict resolution. I’m also involved with STAND, the student-led division of Genocide Intervention Network/Save Darfur Coalition, serving as Co-Coordinator for the Conflict Free Campus Initiative and Advocacy Coordinator for Stanford’s chapter. Otherwise, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and perusing thrift stores.
