I'm an eager knowledge-seeker who's conducted formal and informal research in comparative & historical linguistics, synchronic & diachronic morphophonology and morphosyntax, etymology, folklore, and poetics over the past 5 years.
I participated in student leadership for much of my school tenure, which gave me an opportunity to develop skills in communication, conversation facilitation, budgeting, and event planning. I recently finished a term of AmeriCorps service as a college & Career Coach with the College Success Foundation which grew and developed these skills, in addition to providing an opportunity to work on an amazing team and work collaboratively to provide opportunities to youth to help close the achievement gap in education access.
My goal is to gain more experience in linguistic fields and in the linguistic workforce and contribute to more work in comparative and sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, cultural anthropology, and folklore studies, all towards the ultimately goal of teaching and conduct fieldwork in these knowledge areas.
