I’m a recent grad from Yale-NUS College in Singapore, majoring in Environmental Studies, and a 2017-18 Planet Forward Correspondent. Primarily, I am a writer. Besides creating my own pieces, I’m interested in storytelling to build creative non-fiction pieces, making collages out of everyday lives. Environmental studies was the major which made the most sense to me - nothing else seems as tantamount as trying to figure out how we can all live together (humans and non-humans alike) on this planet of finite resources with a misaligned system of infinite growth.
The rainy city of Seattle, WA, is my hometown, but I've lived and studied abroad since the age of 15 in Thailand, Guatemala, Swaziland, and currently Singapore. I'm interested in food security in the era of the Anthropocene and understanding the relationships between nutrition, health, and the environment.
