Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a second year at the University of Chicago studying Political Science and International Studies. I have been a board member of Splash! Chicago for almost a year now. My studies focus on human rights in conflict zones. I am particularly interested in the Middle East and Israeli-Palestinian conflict resolution. I play soccer for the University of Chicago women's soccer team. In my free time I enjoy teaching myself guitar, going for runs along Lake Michigan and exploring Chicago with friends.
