What Attracted Me to CURL:

As I started taking classes in my Urban Studies minor, I became very passionate about diversity, gentrification, and the ways in which community residents cooperate and live together. I wanted to do more than just sit in a classroom and learn about these topics; I wanted to first-hand experience with the topics. CURL presented itself as an opportunity to propel my education past the class room and into the real world.

What I Hope to Gain from CURL:

I'm eager to start working with the CURL team and explore the connections between my studies thus far and today's society. I'm looking to see what kind of projects interest me, and hopefully narrow down my future career goals a bit. Mostly, I'm excited to see class room discussions manifest themselves in real data and reflecting our neighborhoods. I'm thrilled to be a part of the CURL team!
