“As a diverse new voice, I'm the President of an international nonprofit, published author, speaker, lawyer, former physicist - and only 24!”
Non-profit Politics LGBTQIA+ Mental Health Feminism
As a minority woman, I know what it's like to struggle for everything - fighting against stereotypes and personal illnesses to give back to my country and the world, most recently as the President of an international nonprofit. I've also motivated audiences around the country at TEDx talks, written for the Boston Globe, and reached "influencer status" on LinkedIn. With my polymath background, I've been able to attract publicity from multiple audiences and have been previously featured/mentioned on CBS news, San Jose Mercury News, and Forbes. Please read on for my full bio.
