I was born and raised in Barrington, Rhode Island. On campus I am involved in several student clubs and organizations including The Hill News student newspaper, a reading-mentoring program at a local elementary school, the outdoor program (as a guide), club soccer, and the hunting and fishing club.
My first African experience came in spring 2013 when I traveled with 21 other students to Kenya for the St. Lawrence University Kenya Semester Program. The time I spent in Kenya and Tanzania helped shape my academic and career trajectories and certainly changed me as a person. During the semester I learned much about the peoples, cultures, and challenges of the developing world, but also much about myself.
After graduation I hope to work for the government in some capacity either domestically or abroad. I’m confident the skills I have gathered through my Government and African Studies courses have prepared me well for my career.
