Education policy, child welfare policy, housing policy, corporate social responsibility
BioI received my undergraduate degree in business and journalism from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 2017. After graduating, I moved to Atlanta, GA, where I worked on Deloitte's Corporate Citizenship team, focused on empowering Deloitte professionals to make an impact in their communities and helping students prepare for college and careers. In 2021, I started as a Master of Public Policy student at the Goldman School of Public Policy at UC-Berkeley. My policy interests include education, housing, child welfare, and social policy. Outside of school and work, I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors, doing yoga, and hanging out with family and friends. I am originally from Omaha, Nebraska and my immediate family is split between Nebraska, North Carolina, and California, so I love to travel to visit them!
High School Students and Political Media
This project would address the question, "how are high school students influenced by the politically-focused media they consume?" The student could conduct interviews or focus groups with peers to understand how political news impacts their views on topics in the news, wellbeing, and more. The student could also draw on existing literature to understand the impacts political news has on young people.
