When I was 15, I spend a summer by myself in Shanghai. I have also lived in Taiwan (6 months) and Paris (6 months). I speak English, Spanish, Chinese, some French and a little Arabic.

  • What else ...

    So excited to meet people around the world! I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and have studied International Relations and Public Policy at UT Austin. I have worked at Texas Civil Rights Project (working towards prison abolition) and Refugee Services of Texas (working with displaced person settlement in Austin). I also lived in Taiwan for a semester, where I studied at National Taiwan University and worked at the Taiwan Institute of Sustainable Energy. The following semester I studied International Security at Sciences Po University in Paris.
    I love playing music (violin, ukulele, and singing), as well as watching TV and musical theater. I think of myself as a very chill person, but I am also very extroverted and organized.
