I received my undergraduate degree in English at the University of Massachusetts Boston, where I graduated summa cum laude and won the James William Fay Essay Prize for best undergraduate writing for the 2009-2010 school year. I also minored in dance, with a focus on ballet, which I have been teaching for over 10 years. I went on to receive a master's degree in English at Boston College where I studied postcolonial literature and theory, with a specific focus on Anglophone literatures hailing from England, Ireland, and India. Since graduating, I have taught writing and literature at the undergraduate-level and helped students revise their writing for a wide array of classes as a university tutor. In my free time I like to take dance classes (having been trained in classical ballet myself) and go to concerts. I also like to read, watch movies, and catch the Patriots on Sundays.
