Throughout her schooling, she has worked to balance her love of foreign policy with a passion for public service. Her sophomore year, she participated in the Verona study abroad program, cementing her dedication and curiosity towards understanding and respecting foreign cultures and norms.

She was also fortunate enough to be a Frye Fellow during the 2018-2019 school year, and was able to serve the Athens community directly during the Georgia Legislative Session.
