I firmly believe that the absence of cultural education in core curriculum is the leading cause of the excessive ignorance that plagues the social politics of America today. Anthropology teaches the beautiful complexities of human nature and behavior; it defines community, identity, and culture. Studying Political Science and Anthropology at Loyola University Chicago, I hope to combine the methodical approach of political analysis with the specific appreciation and research through ethnography to discover the motivations and agency for current social hierarchy.

I enjoy researching food culture (as I did in Thailand), city identity, evolution of modern music, and religious agency for its followers. I speak French, Thai, and a little German. A barista, sushi chef, bike delivery guy, and Planned Parenthood recruiter, I am witness to many different perspectives in the beautifully diverse city of Chicago.
