I am a May 2023 graduate of New York University’s Gallatin School and a paralegal at a Protection and Advocacy (“P&A”) agency. My self-designed concentration was Mental Illness and the Criminal Legal System, and my minor was in Disability Studies. I am a disabled woman, writer, advocate, and a future public defender. I am 24 years old and was born and raised in the NYC metro area.

I am currently completing a two year MSc degree titled Disability Studies, Rights and Inclusion through the University of Leeds on a hybrid basis, based primarily in NYC.
