A graduate from Wesleyan University (BA East Asian studies and Environmental Studies; Critical Theory certificate). I am most interested in the intersection of environmental/climate justice and public health disparities; namely, the ways in which environmental exploitation and climate change simultaneously most negatively affect disadvantaged communities and create public health disparities. I am currently working at Swarthmore College's Office of Sustainability and Lang Center for Civic and Social Responsibility doing student programming and working on other office projects. In the future, hope to get my MPH with a focus in environmental/climate health and social epidemiology in the hopes of continuing the work to make the environment healthy, equitable, and accessible for all. In my free time, I like practicing photography, sewing, listening to NPR podcasts, and supporting Asian American voices. I am always looking for ways to continue being creative, express my voice, and create spaces to uplift and center marginalized folk.
