I was born and raised in New York city, where I attended the United Nations International School. Growing up in this environment gave me a sense of being a part of a larger world community, which has led to my thirst for learning about different cultures, places, people, and for discussing the politics that arises out of their interaction. I intend to satiate this thirst through writing, photography, and exploring other forms of visual communication as means to spread awareness on these issues. I have just graduated from the University of Edinburgh where I received a degree in Politics and Philosophy. During this time abroad I traveled extensively around the continent, and spent the last two summers in Cameroon and Ghana working for a volunteer organization. I am now back in New York city, missing the bonny isles very much. I also play the cello, and my dream is to become a pilot.
