Living in twelve cities before the age of eighteen, I learned from a young age to analyze human relations to space. This drove me to study Community Planning in my undergraduate career, during which time I developed a love for human geography. Traveling through Europe and South East Asia only increased my interest in this field: witnessing the vast inequality, poverty and suffering that encompasses the world ignited my passion for global development. This led me to purse a Master's in Development Practice, as well as a yoga training certification focused on mediation and wellness. I hope to combine my knowledge of community planning, global development, and mindfulness in my future career to make a positive contribution to humanity.
