I am the Co-President of SAAFE, Sexual Assault Awareness For Everyone, Wellesley's advocacy, peer educator and trained first-responder organization. As President I coordinate events, maintain a social media presence and organize with student leaders from across the region. I am working on developing a 15-min narrative film about a student that experiences sexual assault in college that will be filmed next year.
Co-Founded Blue Peel Productions
Blue Peel Productions is a video production company that works to empower women and girls around the world through documentary and narrative film. Blue Peel Productions focuses on women in front of and behind the camera.
I assist Wellesley Center for Women researcher Dr. Linda Charmaraman in her research on the intersection of race, media and identity. I have created social media content to publicize Dr. Charamaraman's past a current work and work with her to investigate how racial representation in mainstream TV impact civi engagement in minorities. To research racial representation in TV I created a database and rating system for racial diversity in sitcoms based on a 2,000 participant study.
SF Soda Tax Organizer
Over the summer of 2014 I worked on the San Fransisco Soda Tax Campaign, a grassroots movement to improve public health. As an organizer and neighborhood mobilization coordinator I was responsible for volunteer recruitment in 2 districts in San Fransisco. I shot, directed, and edited a video to build volunteer moral and recruit supporters. Our grassroots campaign was up against a $7 million dollar campaign put on by the American Beverage Association, but with on the ground organizing we managed to get 55% of the vote.
