They, Them, Theirs


I assist with the monitoring of child welfare systems operating under federal consent decrees and provide support and contribute to a variety of projects for the Equity, Inclusion, and Justice team; the Alliance for Racial Equity; and getREAL.

I do this work because

I am passionate about improving the lives of children and youth, especially those who face systemic barriers to accessing services, resources, and opportunities.

Being elected to represent George Washington University’s 27,000 students as student body president.
