About Me:

I am a participant in the Young Women Speak the Economy project from the United States. I'm an Anthropology and Sociology major and minor in Women's Studies at Mills College in Oakland, California. I am currently interested in conducting ethnographic research on Catholic women and minority practices. Specifically, head covering among Catholic lay women.

I also have an interest in educational systems and how they impact women's immediate and future options in multiple facets of their lives.

I'm passionate about:

Women's issues in religion and education, and how these issues impact other parts of their lives. Gaining a more holistic view of individuals to work toward a fuller picture of larger issues.
