I graduated From Hamline University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree double major in Political Science and History. While at Hamline, I participated in a number of organizations and conferences including but not limited to: PRIDE BSA, Hamline University’s Residential Housing Association (RHA), the Hamline ENCORE Team, Commitment to Community, and Hamline’s Diversity Integration Standing Committee. I was also one of the original founders of “The Movement, a student lead organization that had the mission of, “encouraging the uplifting and upholding of social, racial, gender, and sexual equalities.” In 2014 I became the first student from Hamline to win the Gilder Lerhman History Scholar Award from the Gilder Lerhman History Institute. While juggling academics with extracurricular activities, I also gained real work experience as a community organizer for the non-profit All Parks Alliance for Change, Sr. Fellow in the McVay Youth Partnership after school program for targeted youth, and Community Builder for Project for Pride in Living (PPL). I currently work to create opportunities for youth in North Minneapolis to work towards achieving their potential through the YMCA’s Nellie Stone Johnson Beacons after school program.
