Member, Project Manager
Youth Working Group National Commission to UNESCO
U.S. Department of State
In 2014, I graduated in top of my department from Hood College where I studied law and international affairs. During college, I law clerked for a criminal and civil defense attorney, spent time in Nepal working with CNN Hero of the Year Pushpa Basnet, and became the V.P. of Operations of the U.S. Federation of UNESCO Clubs, Centers, and Associates. With the U.S. Federation I created the Annual Youth Multimedia Competition, served as the U.S. representative to peace conferences in Kazakstan, and organized the 2014 Executive Board Summit of the World Federation at the UN in New York.
After graduating, I biked across the U.S. to raise awareness about human trafficking with my charity group Worthwhile: GO (previously Long Road to Freedom). Across the county we worked with various agencies/organizations on the issue and held speaking/charity events.
At the beginning of the year, I was asked to join the Youth Working Group to the U.S. National Commission for UNESCO. The working group is a group of young americans that works to advise the Commission on its focuses and to work to engage millennials in the work thereof. Our largest project has been Global Hangouts which so far connects over 1100 youth in over 100 countries every month with another person to discuss and take action on global issues.
