"I am an alumna of the University of Florida where I studied Political Science and Criminology. After graduating, I became a Teach for America Corps Member, teaching middle and high school Mathematics in Mississippi public schools. After completing that journey, I interned for a lawyer and I decided that my future plans to attend law school were TBA (if ever).

Instead, I decided that I wanted to help heal the wounds of society by becoming more culturally and politically aware of issues as well as exploring how to solve them using complex data analysis tools. There was no better place to accomplish this than to attend Carnegie Mellon University in Australia. I plan to implement these skills either by working in government or organizing grassroots and community initiatives."
