Winner of Marion Huber Learning Through Listening (LTL) Award for Student with A Learning Disability

After graduating from The Park School of Baltimore this past spring, I started my freshman year this fall at Cornell University. I am currently majoring in Policy Analysis and Management and considering a minor in Human Biology, Health and Society. At Cornell, I am a member of a judicial committee called the Peer Review Board, part of a mentoring and tutoring group, and a writer for the science section of the school's newspaper.

Although I am not yet sure what I would like to pursue after graduating and may take one of many paths, I could definitely see myself pursuing one of the two interests I developed in high school: education policy and the science of learning.
