Harvard Kennedy School of Government

Fellowship, Organizing: People, Power, and Change

I studied as a Community Fellow under Professor Marshall Ganz in his Kennedy School course, "Organizing: People, Power, and Change."

In it, we lead real-world projects focused on grassroots training, organizing, and leadership development in our own communities, which shaped my work in politics and later, at Bossed Up.


Brown University

BA, Political Science

Brown University gave me the reins to steer my own education. I studied political science (with a heavy emphasis on gender equality and feminist political theory) and almost double-majored in cognitive science, focusing on how we make decisions.

I have always been fascinated by how our individual choices add up to construct our collective body politic. That's precisely what I do now at Bossed Up - make the connection between our personal choices and how they shape our broader culture.
