My Racial Justice Framework

After seeing how years of systemic oppression and discriminatory policies have led to the suffering of Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) and the othering of Asian bodies in my communities, I have since been committed to taking effective action towards racial equity and justice.

My Princeton RISE Project

I am aiding the Prison Teaching Initiative in the design, development, and testing of a college-level computer science course for incarcerated individuals, with the aim of building a pipeline to a biased job market in the STEM fields for incarcerated populations.
