I was was born in Atlanta, Ga., and I have roots in that tradition. However, traveling and living abroad has opened my mind, and allowed me to see the beauty and responsibility that her own country possesses. Her motto is "live locally but think globally." I live out of a suitcase most of the time (always ready for the next adventure), but I know that I have a greater purpose to the world. A current graduate student in Media Advocacy and Media Management at the New School for Public Engagement in New York, I strive for success and improvement. With a professional background in social media, marketing, development, and grassroots' organizing, I hope to achieve a career in media strategy and management. I am dedicated to the causes of women's rights, preventing child abuse and neglect, HIV/AIDS and sexual health awareness, youth empowerment, food and environmental sustainability. My work as Development and Media Outreach Associate, and previously as a community mobilization volunteer in West Africa in the Peace Corps, are invaluable assets and show my ability to fight for peace, justice, education, and equality.
When I am not-so-serious I love watching and analyzing films. My favorite genres are drama, sci-fi, and horror. My other passions include being a Whovian, foodie, and a overall nerd.
