I’m a second year law student, responsible for the network of contributors at Talk About. Though I avidly enjoy new experiences and adventures, ultimately, my aim is to amplify the voices of those who aren’t heard and help as many people as I can.

I have been with Talk About since the summer of 2019. In addition to working at Talk About I lead a participation project for young people. I strive hard to improve my skill sets in ways that benefit the public. Some of my hobbies are to code and sew.

While at uni I sat on the committee at Nightline, leading to a passion for mental health and suicide prevention.
