critical thinker, learning facilitator
The adverse effects of an increased rate of climate change are happening now and will continue to increase in severity and frequency going forward. While this fact has been misrepresented in the media as a “doomsday” forecast yet to come true and instead of focusing on the fearful negativity, I see a future full of opportunities across all sectors of the economy. Specifically, I am interested in capitalizing on innovative solutions to the world’s “wicked” problems that utilize my skills in spatial studies (GIS), entrepreneurship, environmental science, and policy.Integrity, justice, and love are my core values which inform all aspects of my life and upcoming career. My passions revolve around areas of injustice that I experience and see everyday- things that I cannot forget or become desensitized to, because they are essential to my personal humanity. The nexus between mitigating climate change and addressing said injustices has continually placed Global South on my heart and mind. I am looking for exposure and experience in the international field using my technical skills to spur data-driven, GOOD policy that ultimately helps people. My next pursuits are focused on AI and data science to address national security concerns with the future goal of positively impacting peoples’ lives around the world. I’m always looking for new ideas and thought processes, so please feel free to get in touch with me- I look forward to our future conversations (and debates)!
