Years in MCSP:
I was in MCSP all four years! I was on the programming board my sophomore year and then became an MCSP RA my final 2 years.
What have you been up to since graduation?
I moved to New York City and began working in advertising at Yelp before returning to the University of Michigan to pursue a graduate degree in Public Policy.
What are you currently doing now?
I am in the final semester of my MPP degree at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. In addition to my coursework, I have had the opportunity to intern at Facebook, work on consulting projects in Detroit, and serve as an RA in Munger Graduate Residences.
How do you integrate social justice into your life post-college?
As an RA for graduate students, I try my best to create and foster an inclusive and diverse community in which all residents feel respected, represented, and safe. Also, as a public policy student, I am learning ways to craft and implement policies that promote human rights, equality, and fairness.
What is your favorite memory about MCSP?
From dancing at MCSProm to working in the Brightmoor community garden, MCSP has gifted me with the best of friends and a lifetime of memories. I was lucky to be surrounded by a community of people with an infectious passion for social change and activism. I have MCSP to thank for offering the perspectives and networks needed to forge a civic-minded path in public policy.
