I graduated from Tufts University with a B.A. in Political Science in 2011. I then served as a Preventative Health Education Peace Corps Volunteer in Senegal, West Africa for two years and continued for a third year to work with an organization doing public health research. I taught students of all levels, as well as adults, about health issues and tutored high school students in English and Math to prepare them for their exit exams. I also worked with adults to improve their spoken English for professional purposes. I studied Spanish up to the A.P. level during high school then studied French during college. I improved my French abilities while studying abroad in Cameroon, and became fluent in speaking, listening, reading and writing French while living in Senegal. During this time, I also learned two other local languages and in the process, learned methods for mastering new languages. I rely on these same methods to teach others ESL, French and Spanish. Based in part on my GRE scores, I was accepted to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health’s Master of Science program and will begin studying Global Health and Population in the fall. I teach others the methods I used to succeed on the GRE so that they can also boost their applications to graduate schools. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking vegetarian food, making crafts from repurposed objects and exploring places I haven’t been before.
