An East Asian studies and Environmental studies double major with a Critical Theory certificate at Wesleyan University. 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. After Wesleyan, I 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.
