- writer. journalist. social media nerd. october baby.
recovering journalist, world traveler, frozen yogurt aficionado, public radio fiend and no fan of capitalization—basically, your typical millennial dreamer. I’m taking a break from adult life to jaunt across continents and venture into trilingualism.

in my former life, I lived in washington, dc where I wrote about everything from reproductive health resources to rachel jeantel as a reporter, editor and blogger. I am fiercely passionate about advocacy for women and girls, working as a volunteer for a local rape crisis center, hips, girls rock dc and as a volunteer facilitator for fem*exDC‘s youth program. previously, I worked as a writer and editor for the black women’s health imperative, the only organization solely devoted to the health and wellness of black women and girls.
