Hi! My name is Malka, and I am a current student at Harvard Law School. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Princeton with a degree in Religion in 2021 and worked in policy in New York City until I started law school. Once I’m a lawyer, I plan to work in impact litigation doing work on religious freedom jurisprudence.
I have been working as a writing tutor for 5+ years and love helping students unlock their inner writer. Although I have the most experience in writing and the humanities, I also dabbled as a math teacher during my year abroad in India and feel comfortable tutoring math.
Outside of academics I enjoy hiking, swimming, and generally being outside. I just finished thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in August 2023 (all 2000+ miles of it!) and can’t wait to tackle my next big outdoor adventure!
