Education: 

BA in TESOL and Political Science 

International Experience: 

I've attended Model UN conferences in Tel Aviv and Madrid and just spent two and half weeks on a capstone in Uganda and Rwanda!

Why do you enjoy working with International Students: 
International students bring with them unique experiences and can add a lot of nuanced perspectives to complex issues; I always appreciate having discussions with students who don't share my background and learning about their views and ideas. I also love how eager students are to not only absorb their new cultural environment, but also to share insights from their own background.
