As a first-generation college student, I was award a full-merit scholarship to go college, where I graduated at age 19. I was accepted into my Master's program at age 20 and graduated the youngest in my cohort at age 23, having worked full-time as a congressional staffer.


As a first-generation professional, I began working at age 20 on a learn-as-you-go basis. Since coming to Washington, DC in 2010, I have worked for both houses of Congress, the executive branch and a multilateral institution - learning a lot along the way. 


Beyond class and work, I push to develop my training in life through extra projects, such as creating my own Super PAC, pursuing an ethics fellowship, and publishing articles.
