Personal Statement

As social workers, we have the power to shape the lives of individuals and communities. As a macro-level social worker and committed public servant, I have focused my career on understanding the intersection of the environment and social determinants of health while incorporating representative media into social justice and policy advocacy. 

I have a passion for helping students find their voice while pursuing social justice in their communities.
