I was born on March 14, 1984 and raised in New Jersey. During high school, I was a gymnastics teacher and pre-school age camp counselor. At college, I worked as a lab assistant doing biogenetics research for Bard faculty. Currently, I am second year student at Bard College. I am a Human Rights major with a Concentration in Global and International Studies, as well as Pre-Med. I am interested in Human Rights as a realist, as opposed to an idealist, and achieving changes I see as feasible during the course of our lifetimes. I also take classes in Painting, Writing, and French. I started playing the violin when I was three, studied at the Westminster Conservatory in Princeton and the School For Strings in Manhattan and am active in the Bard Orchestra, as well as chamber music and private lessons. I plan to attend the Central European University in Budapest next spring, to continue my studies in Human Rights and Political Science, and continue with Medical School after graduation from Bard. I hope to pursue a career in Public Health, specifically epidemiology and International Relations.
