Hello! I am a second-year student at Columbia University in the City of New York double majoring in Psychology and Human Rights. After obtaining my B.A. from Columbia, I hope to attend law school, using my education to work in human rights law and activism.
 
Currently, I am a full-time student at Columbia University in New York City, however, I was born and raised in Edmond, Oklahoma. On-campus, I am a part of numerous organizations such as the Columbia University Orchestra, Columbia Pops Orchestra, and Minecraft Club, and Mixed Heritage Club. As I am a Native American woman and enrolled in the Seminole Nation Tribe of Oklahoma, I have taken a board position on Columbia University’s Native American Council, where I advocate for Native recognition, appreciation, and inclusion on campus.
 
Outside of school, I am a co-founder of Student Voices United for Education, a non-profit organization that strives to improve the public education systems across the state of Oklahoma through advocacy and legislative changes. Additionally, I work as a part-time Advising Fellow for Matriculate, an organization focused around empowering high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to the best colleges and universities. As an Advising Fellow, I virtually help exceptional high school students identify colleges that are a good fit; complete essays, resumes, recommendations, and application forms; apply for financial aid and compare packages; and prepare academically, socially, and emotionally to succeed in college.
 

Above all, I am just a spunky human who loves petting dogs, consuming ramen, exploring NYC, playing viola, watching an unhealthy number of episodes of The Office, and trying to make the world a happier place!

Why do you come to work at Root & Rebound every day?

I come to work at R&R every day to dismantle the unjust effects of the American carceral system on black, indigenous, and people of color through educational empowerment and legal advocacy. As a Native American woman, I have seen first-hand the lack of focus on Native communities and work with R&R to promote research and education on Native American and Indigenous issues, especially those on the relationship between sovereign indigenous tribes and the carceral system. I am beyond proud to work with R&R and understand that my work is positively and directly affecting the communities most harmed by mass incarceration.
