News Editor, Researcher, Fencer


Get to know me!

At the heart of my journalism and research is the acknowledgement of the privileges I have, and how that  privilege can be used to uplift the voices of the disempowered.

Within my roles as a news editor and researcher, I place a special focus on covering topics pertaining to social justice for marginalized gender and racial populations. Alongside these, I have a special interest in law, labor and administrative issues, a testament to my desire to pursue investigations further in my career.
