Undergraduate at Boston University, passionate about tackling oppressive systems through advocacy & awareness





Boston University

B.A. Sociology, Minors in Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies; Public Health

Sociology Concentration: Intersecting Identities and Inequalities.

The combination of my interests in women's health and oppressive systems that may bar women from receiving proper, quality health care and education led me to declare a major in Sociology with the minors listed above. I am especially interested in how mental health affects LGBTQ+ populations and what implications may ensue if we do not tend to those issues/populations.

I am a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, an international honors society for sociology undergraduates and graduates.
