I work with the College Dean and faculty to better understand issues related to diversity and formulate and implement solutions as a student representative in the Diversity Committee.
I assist in actively recruiting underrepresented minority and first generation students to the graduate school through on and off campus recruitment events and providing guidance and mentoring to prospective graduate students.
I've had the pleasure of working with some amazing women in math to nurture and foster girls' interest in mathematics since fall of 2009. I've also been involved with a range of other tasks including organizing various events and representing Girls' Angle at the annual NYC FIRST Robotics competitions.
I had the privilage of working with the House Professor-Dean, Assistant Dean, fellow GRFs, Student Assistants and House Fellows to create a positive, vibrant, and academically engaging community through leadership and mentorship roles including: providing academic support through weekly office hours, modeling and maintaining community standards, and building community by organizing numerous intellectual and social events each week.
I was a panelist for the "Gender Gap in Math" discussion held in April 2015 (in response to a survey) and again for the first Women in Math and Statistics (WIMS) conference in April 2016. The discussions from the first panel served as a starting point for the creation of GIIM--a vibrant and expanding group, thanks to the tireless efforts of the board, faculty advisors, and active participants! If you are in the Cambridge area, there are a series of great events lined up!
I was a two term Editor-in-Chief of this student-run publication. My job included selecting staff, planning publication time-line, choosing and editing content, managing subscriptions, and events associated with the publication. Here are the two issues under my leadership: Vol. 3 & Vol. 4.
I have written over 50 articles, most of which
are related to city politics and Cambridge Public Schools. My articles
have been referenced and highlighted in various domains outside of the
Harvard Crimson, including wikipedia and Boston Teacher Residency.
