Why you chose your major

I'm very passionate about Human Rights in the US and abroad and how to resolve international human rights crises.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

My favorite course so far has been PHIL 106 - a philosophy course about ethics and current issues. It was really impactful to learn about different philosophical ways of thinking about current global debates that we're having.

Research or internship experience

For the spring semester of 2020, I was an intern at Nebraska Appleseed, a Lincoln based non-profit. I got to visit different parts of Lincoln, speak to people about housing rights and economic injustices that they face, and help organize educational events and resources. When COVID-19 hit, I helped create and translate informational documents about the Census, voting, and economic impact payments.

Other involvement

World Youth Alliance, Campus Orchestra, Sigma Iota Rho - Global Studies professional fraternity

Why you chose Nebraska

When I visited UNL for the first time, I got to meet my academic advisors who provided me with so much information right off the bat. They were very engaged in my passion for global studies and I could see that this level of attention and care for my future was exactly what I wanted out of my degree.
