I am a recent graduate of Brown University (2012- GPA 3.7) where I graduated with degrees in English Literature
Arts. I have always had a passion for teaching, first fostering this interest as a teacher's aid in my school's Lower School and as a camp counselor for a number of years. I also worked throughout high school as a teacher's aid at Temple Emmanuel's Sunday School Program. Teaching and education continued to be an important part of my collegiate life as well.
I worked as a coordinator and participant of No Small Parts, an educational outreach program that leads theatre and performance workshops at inner-city schools in Providence, Rhode Island. Currently. Also, I worked with Brown Refugee Tutoring and Enrichment which assigned English tutors to refugee families in Providence. Currently, I am tutoring sixth grade math
with a family in Bushwick.
I am originally from northern New Jersey. As far as hobbies are concerned, I love Photography
and travel writing
. My favorite author (not a travel writer) is Virginia Woolf. At Brown, I also sang with a jazz a cappella group, The Higher Keys.
Recently, I was awarded an AT&T New Media Fellowship, an award given to those students who show promise in the combination of writing and new media, and am currently connected with Write Bloody, a publishing company based in New York City, where I work part time as an editor
. While at Brown I also worked as a member of the Brown Writing Fellows, a group of selected and trained students who show and aptitude in writing, editing
, and the teaching of the two.
As far as my high school education/scores go, I graduated from Saddle River Day School (a small private high school in Bergen County, NJ) in 2008 as salutatorian and as a member of the Cum Laude National Honors Society. I was also the recipient of the Bradford Cooke Sommer Humanitarian Scholarship (2007) as well as the University of Rochester Bausch & Lomb Honorary Science
