I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

What school do you attend, and what is your year and major there?

I attend George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, where I am a major in Public Administration with a minor in Human Development & Family Sciences.

In my free time I like to hang out with my friends.  We watch movies (especially comedies, Marvel films), go to all kinds of restaurants, or go shopping for clothes.

I hope to work with a Department of Education either at the state or federal level to change and implement education policies that better our education system and country.

Cajón Del Maipo, ChileWhy did you choose to intern with Learning Life?

My original career plans was to do foreign policy and work at the international level, however they have now shifted into educational policy at the domestic level. Even though my career plans do not involve the international level anymore, that is something that still interests me deeply.  Learning Life combines the international with education as the organization’s goal is to educate people about the world.

What is the most beautiful place you have seen on Earth, and why is it so beautiful?

I think the most beautiful place I’ve seen is Cajón Del Maipo in Chile. It’s a canyon is southern Chile.  Even when you are there it still looks like it’s fake because the river water is so blue and the Andes mountains are so vast.  There were also wild horses roaming around, which just added to the breath-taking scene.
