Thinking Talents

After taking the thinking talents assessment I realized that I get my energy from relationship building and creating inclusive environments. I find the greatest value in connecting with others and merging diverse work styles to establish a cohesive team in the workplace. I find strength in numbers and always try to align myself with purpose driven work.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Faculty Coordinator

I do not have a science or engineering background but that has not been a hindrance to my ability to learn something new everyday. I am responsible for being one step ahead of the professors that I assist and know what they need before they need it. One of the best parts of my job is seeing members of my research groups begin their journey in academia and then land amazing career opportunities. My role has truly been a humbling experience where I am able to use my relational skills everyday.

Career

University of Washington

Bachelors of Arts, American Studies and Political Science with a minor in Diversity

University of Washington is where I learned how to tell my own story. I was inspired by learning about marginalized communities and the legacies that they left behind despite being excluded from traditional historical text. UW taught me about the importance of having your own voice and speaking up in class for what you believe in.

McNair Program

In 2010 I became a McNair Scholar where I decided to do research on African American women and racial tokenism within academia. I was able to give a voice to many women experiencing feelings of isolation and resistance through anonymous interviews. My proudest moments were publishing my work on racial tokenism and graduating with valuable qualitative research experience.

University of Washington Rome Center Study Abroad

In the Eternal City I soaked up all the delicious food, culture, and amazing architecture but most importantly formed many great memories with my study abroad cohort. For many of us it was our first time out of the country and away from everything that was familiar to us. From this experience I learned to always live in the moment and to appreciate those who experience the moment with you.

Paris Adventures

This trip with two of my dearest friends taught me a lot about myself and doing something for your own happiness. It had always been a dream of mine to go to France and in April I finally made it happen! I still reminisce about the delicious pain au chocolats from the Parisian bakeries. Délicieux!

Standing on the Shoulders of Greatness

During the early summer I stumbled upon the African Meeting House in Beacon Hill which turned out to be no accident. One of the stories that stuck with me was about a woman named Maria Stewart. I learned that during the 1800s Maria became the first American born woman to publicly condemn both racism and sexism, and one of the first African American activists to speak out against slavery. I feel extremely lucky to be standing on the shoulders of such dynamic women like Maria and will make it my mission to carry her badge of fearlessness. Maria's courage and strength are reminders that I too have the power to speak my own truth.

"Give it up to that thing that is greater than yourself"- Oprah

I watch this video whenever I need inspiration. Oprah talks about feelings of unworthiness and her ability to let go of these fears in order to become her career defining character Sofia Johnson in The Color Purple. Truly uplifting words!
