I am originally from Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Delaware in 2012 with a BA in Sociology with a concentration in Law and Society and BA in Women’s Studies with minors in Political Science and Black American Studies. I was fortunate enough to take part in a short internship in Rondebosch, South Africa where I worked in a human right’s law firm writing legal opinions and offering free legal advice through a local clinic.
