Prior development experience (if any):

After undergrad, I worked with City Year Los Angeles which is a branch of AmeriCorps. I provided one-on-one and small group support for students below grade level in English and Mathematics at John Liechty Middle School in the West Lake/Pico Union neighborhood.

In Madrid, I was a Language Assistant. However, it was quite different since I was working in the suburbs.

In Fresno, California, I was an After School Program Leader and Summer Camp Leader for a Section 8 housing apartment complex. The program was put into place so the children could have a safe space to do homework and have fun after school rather than be involved in gang activity, sell drugs, etc.

Interests in development:

I'm interested in development through education.
