About me

I am currently a forth year student at UC Santa Barbara, majoring in Sociology and Philosophy with a minor in Professional Writing. While at UCSB I participated in the UCSB Mock Trial team as both a Closing Attorney and an Expert Witness, and participated as an active member of the co-ed prelaw fraternity Phi Alpha Delta, where I served as the Leader in Training Professional Development Chair.

Prior to attending UC Santa Barbara I was a student at Fullerton Community College, where I received Associates Degrees in History, Political Science, and Sociology. While attending Fullerton Community College I also participated in Speech and Debate, where I competed in the Informative and Persuasive catagories.
