Wellesley College

BA, Comparative Literature, International Relations-History

A graduate once said, "Wellesley will break you down and then build you up again." That is exactly my experience. One of my key lessons has been self-management and self-care.

I was the Vice President of the Slater International Student Org, Centerfold Editor of the publication, The Wellesley Globalist, a DJ for the college radio WZLY 91.5FM, and an Alto 1/Soprano II in the Wellesley College Choir.

One of my greatest achievements was being part of the student team that fought to include alternative languages on graduation diplomas, making Wellesley the first college in the US to provide the service.

BILD (Bosnia Initiatives for Local Development)

Intern

Passion & Service | I spent the summer in Bosnia-Herzegovina working with an education NGO in two cities, Tuzla and Doboj.

- Taught thematic English courses to students 16-35 years old to a 97% satisfaction rate.
- Organized and implemented all extracurricular activities on a shoestring budget.
- Supported the team in all aspects of operations.

Career

Accenture

Strategy Department Intern

Work Hard, Play Hard | Consulting is fast-paced work and a constant respond to change. I learned to work on multiple project teams and learn on the job. On days when we weren't battling deadlines, the team would share Starbucks discounts and go to the movies together.

- Created GANTT Charts to help improve the logistical flow of a Taiwanese NGO's program plan in Shanghai, China.
- Helped implement a global luxury car brand's secondhand car market entry strategy in China.
- Translated between Chinese and English for different project presentations.

SHSID (Shanghai High School International Division)

Primary, Middle, High School

Adapting & Learning | This school was the longest I ever spent in any single place. Shanghai was the first place I truly felt at home after being in a transient stage after moving from the LA suburbs to Xiamen, China two years before. It was where I met some of the people most important to me today and the place that challenged me the most pre-college.

Mycelium

Research Intern

Mycelium is an alternative education social enterprise based in Asheville, NC.

I conducted market research and partner relations research for them as well as blogged. This led to the discovery of a similar organization in Mexico, which led to one of Mycelium's co-founders to lead a workshop with them, which led to one of the attendees joining the Mycelium team.

Career

Shanghai American School - Pudong

High School, China

Expanding Horizons | When the competitive atmosphere at SHSID was becoming toxic for me, I needed to transfer. It was a tough choice because in many ways it felt like I was giving up and choosing the easy way out going to the school many jokingly called, "the land of milk and honey" for being more American than localized. But I also knew it was the best choice I could have made. I was mentally and emotionally so much happier. My skills in humanities were able to shine through while previously suppressed and I felt more confident in myself than I would have otherwise. It was learning to take a step back that allowed me to move further ahead.
