Biography

Major: International Relations
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Thesis Advisor: Stephen Stedman

Tentative Thesis Title: The UN and State-building Missions: Democratic Institutions and Legitimacy

Future aspirations post-Stanford: I will be applying to both law school and PhD programs — I hope writing my thesis will help me choose between the two. Post-graduate school, I want to get involved in developmental policymaking.

A fun fact about yourself: I am trained in classical ballet, and I perform with Stanford's own Cardinal Ballet Company!
