I am currently a Sophomore here at SLU and my interest in Asian Studies began when I was applying to study abroad in India. During my application and preparation courses, I developed a desire to understand another set of cultures that I had no previous experience with. In relation to my Sociology major, the Asian Studies program offers me a cultural content to use sociological theories through and have a better understating of how sociology can be applied to the real world.  On campus I am an advocate and activist for women's rights and have broadened my understanding of intersectionalty with the assistance of the Asian studies program.  Outside of academics, I am an avid hiker, reader, activist and musician who loves to organize community events to educate and empower.
