A senior concentrating in Science and Technology studies, she also claims she “majored in extracurriculars” during her time at Brown - she works for the archives of Anne Faust-Sterling, coordinates the Multiracial Heritage Series for the Brown Center for Students of Color, manages the Bluestockings blog, and tutors for BRYTE, among other endeavors and programs.

We chatted about how her views of feminism and language have developed throughout her Brown experience.
