How have you benefited from the Gannon Scholars program?
The community of powerful and intelligent women inspire me to stay focused on my interests and passions while reminding me to take care of myself. I am always challenged to think deeply when I am around these women and I have developed into a more well-spoken and thoughtful person.
Why is the mission of women's leadership important to you?
I believe that in order to create a more safe, peaceful and beautiful world, we must first create an inclusive space for every woman in every part of society. I strive to create opportunities with other Gannon Scholars to empower women to exist freely in a society that often tries to tear them apart and discriminates against them.
What are you interested in researching? Why?
I am interested in researching the effectiveness of peer-led violence and sex education compared to mainstream teachings that may not acknowledge the varied cultural implications of different topics pertaining to the subject matter.
