In pursuit of understanding education’s nexus to policy and law, I am obtaining a Master of Arts in International Education Policy Analysis at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. As an international educator specializing in refugee education, I worked alongside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Sweden and as a Fulbright Scholar in the Canary Islands off of Western Africa. In my aspirations to collaborate with policymakers to reconceptualize equitable educational outcomes that support cultural competencies within our increasingly interdependent globe, I have partnered with Reach The World, Save The Children, and the U.S Department of Cultural Affairs as an EducationUSA ambassador, and the Comparative and International Education Society. In our zeitgeist, I believe a culturally responsive curriculum will become imperative as we prepare our children to cohesively work worldwide to address issues of war, poverty, environmental health, and human rights. My research interests encompass inclusive global educational policies, the United Nations, refugee education equity, and international and comparative education.
