Roosevelt Network Forge Fellow

As a Roosevelt Network Forge Fellow, I am interested in learning about and working on food & housing insecurity as a policy priority, as well as other basic needs issues.

I am a rising sophomore in college, double majoring in Social Work and Political Science. In addition to the Forge Fellowship, I also serve as the Michigan Deputy Organizing Director for Rise, an organization dedicated to achieving free and affordable higher education across the nation. I also work with my university’s Student Congress as the Civic Affairs Director and will be a Teaching Assistant in the Honors College this upcoming fall. Beyond that, I hold leadership roles with multiple student organizations on campus and hope to continue to get involved in organizing within my community and beyond!
