I am a fourth-year honors student at Northeastern University in Boston, majoring in journalism with a minor in political science. I'm a former ballet dancer and art-school kid, so I have a soft spot for anything that takes place in a theater. I tell human-centered stories using various digital tools.
Some things I love: getting lost in new cities, family recipes, running in the rain, really good bread. Bonus points if the bread is your grandma's recipe.
I'm currently serving as projects editor at The Huntington News, Northeastern University's independent student paper. In 2019 I was an intern at The Christian Science Monitor, where I wrote and photographed stories and sometimes produced their daily news podcast. In 2018, I studied abroad in Havana, Cuba, and some visual reporting I did there appeared in print in The Washington Post as well as in The GroundTruth Project. In 2019, I was the runner-up for the New York Times / Nicholas Kristof win-a-trip essay contest.
