MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM MANAGER - Manhattan

“We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.” - Ray Bradbury

Area of Expertise: Finding creative solutions to complicated problems 

Dream Destination: Thailand and Spain

Education: B.A. in Philosophy from the University at Albany 

Soundtrack of my Life: A constant rotation of Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar, The xx, Justin Timberlake and Frank Ocean

Guilty Pleasures: Baking chocolate chip cookies and sharing none.

Hobbies: Writing short stories and novels, baking a lot, painting, reading classics and catching up on every TV show I have promised myself I would watch.

Why I Care About Making Breakthrough Happen: The unlimited talent and potential youth hold are sometimes stifled by a lack of opportunities. I believe in making Breakthrough happen because I see the gaps between what New York City youth are capable of and the support networks available to them. I am eager to be a part of a system which actively works towards seeing young people through their transitions into an accomplished future.
