In my years at Princeton, I’ve really learned what it means to find your passion: coming in as a chemistry major, I am currently a history major focused in 20th century American and colonial studies. I’m most comfortable teaching humanities, math, basic chemistry, and Italian. One of my favorite things about history is how essential communication is – to be able to teach and historicize an era requires a clear, structured way of writing. So, I’ve come to love writing, teaching writing, and literature (specifically poetry), though I do have a background in calculus and chemistry. At Princeton, I’ve become more attuned to my culture and identity, participating in various activism groups for Latinx and LGBT rights! During one summer, I went to Tanzania on a seminar to study neo-colonialism and governmental policy. I’m also an intern for the LGBT Taskforce in D.C focused on human rights policy work! I hope to go to law school and become a human rights lawyer.
