I am a May 2023 graduate of New York University’s Gallatin School and an incoming 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 will be completing Columbia University’s Oral History MA in two years as a part time student, beginning in fall 2023.
