Class of 2023

My analytical background in environmental engineering, my passion for writing and visual storytelling as well as my interest in social justice issues have led me to journalism. Currently in my first year of the Journalism Master’s, I look forward to deepening my skills and covering underreported topics such as mental health issues, and sexual assault.

Previously, I had the opportunity to complete a domestic violence training and volunteer as a support line counselor. This experience helped me build better listening and communication skills which will help me cover difficult subjects with a more empathetic lens. 

I was also able to deepen my understanding of sexual harassment and sexism in the workplace through an internship at the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation. 

Before attending UC Berkeley, I worked on my storytelling skills by creating a video on the impact of COVID-19 on mental health as well as multiple blog posts on a range of topics including radical empathy, misinformation, alcoholism and the criminal justice system.
