I transitioned from a traditional in-person high school environment after my freshman year to a virtual high school. I attended a virtual highschool for my sophomore and junior years where I was challenged in advanced and college classes. I graduated high school one year early in 2017 after completing my requirements. After high school, I took a year and a half to travel domestically and internationally before attending college. I traveled to many different places, where I spent 10 days up to 6 months immersed in different cities around the world. Through these experiences, I got to volunteer, learn about new cultures, and so much more. In 2019, I began my college career at Harrisburg Area Community College to get some basic course requirements done. I found that I was interested in business, history, law, and politics. In 2020, I was accepted to study in the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University to study International Affairs.
Beyond my academic career, since 2018, I have been working in digital marketing and content management. I worked at a start-up tech company where I assisted with email marketing, content writing, and social media presence.
Currently, I have a role with the Institute of Middle East Studies. I work on their social media presence to increase engagement & brand awareness.
In addition, I work with a team to manage blogs for a group of businesses. For my position, I focus on communication with writers and reviewing the posts before scheduling.
A cause close to my heart is health & wellness, and empowering women. I became active with an organization called CHAARG [stands for Changing Health, Attitudes, + Actions To Recreate Girls] in 2020. CHAARG is the largest health + wellness community on college campuses. In 2021, I became one of the executive leaders for the chapter at George Washington. I help promote events and build engagement for our community to continue empowering women. I manage the Instagram account along with other communication endeavors.
