Philadelphia Pennsylvania United States
A motivated and impassioned native born Californian with a lifelong passion for travel, educating others, and making a difference. I attended Arcadia University and graduated with a B.A. in Cultural Anthropology and a dual minor in Global Public Health and Sociology with Academic Honors.
During my time at Arcadia, I spent the entire 2012 year studying abroad at Stellenbosch University, located in South Africa. It was during this year abroad that I took specialized courses in African Development, Medical Anthropology, and Environmental Anthropology. I also volunteered as an Arts and Life Skills after-school program teach at a local township middle school. These courses and experiences shaped my world view dramatically and motivated me to follow a path towards a future in community outreach and youth education.
