I am passionate about human rights for all and uphold that it is only possible if we all work together to attain justice for all. One way is through education and awareness so that we can acknowledge our own faults and prejudices to progress.

I have a M.A. in Political Science – Concentration in United Nations and Global Policy Studies from Rutgers University where I focused on counter-counter-terrorism, conflict resolution, youth empowerment, and human rights. I have a B.A. in Psychology as well as in Middle Eastern Studies from Rutgers University. I use my academic experience to form policy analysis.
