What is something you care deeply about and hope to transform? 

I am passionate about engaging with and advocating for marginalized populations. Identifying the social determinants of “disadvantage” and empowering those who are impacted not only brings equity, but also provides a tremendous return on investment for our society.

I hope to better understand the ways culture, population dynamics, immigration and social inequalities affect our world, bringing me closer to my long-term goal of advocating for the underserved, particularly women, in far-reaching corners of the globe.
