What Attracted Me to CURL:

As an undergrad with varying interests and a passion for cities, I found CURL’s inter-disciplinary approach toward solving urban issues very appealing.  Additionally, I was drawn by CURL’s commitment to social justice.  I will always consider Chicago home and value the opportunity to grapple with the region’s most pressing challenges.

What I Hope to Gain from CURL:

During my time at CURL, I hope to learn from those working to make cities more equitable, prosperous, and exciting places to live.  Also, because CURL works closely with stakeholders from multiple sectors, I hope to be exposed to a variety of perspectives surrounding urban issues.
