I am a recent graduate from the University of Oklahoma, graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelor's of Arts in International Security Studies and a minor in Russian. As a student in Oklahoma, was able to study abroad in St. Petersburg, Russia for the entirety of fall 2012; I participated in Honors curriculum through the Honors College; and for my senior thesis, I discussed recent policy changes enacted by the Russian government and analyzed whether these changes represent ideological shifts.
My exceptional PSAT scores and subsequent National Merit Scholarship award brought me from my hometown of Los Angeles to Oklahoma's campus in Norman. In my educational career, I have excelled at taking tests, but the National Merit Scholarship opened my eyes to the opportunities attained by testing well. I am passionate about helping others learn to succeed on tests, in order to help others receive the kinds of opportunities that I did.
Beyond taking tests, I am passionate about languages. I have been writing novels since I was 13 years old, and can often be found scribbling in edits when I come across typos in newspapers and best-selling novels. My study of Spanish began in high school, and my love affair with Russian not only took me to an 8-week language intensive in Indiana, but St. Petersburg, Russia. I can't wait to help your child succeed!
