Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am currently finishing up my undergraduate degree at San Francisco State University majoring in Urban Studies and Planning with an emphasis in Policy Analysis. My passion is in community and economic development. Particularly, I am interested in how urbanization and redevelopment affect low-income communities. Currently, I have been working in the non-profit sector for more than seven years focusing on youth issues and access to higher education. In the past year, I have caught the travel bug and have great experiences visiting countries like Australia and New Zealand. I look forward to doing more traveling and combining it with the work that I do.
