Bio: I was born and raised in a small town called Berne in northeast Indiana. I'm currently an undergraduate student at IUPUI studying English (with a concentration in Linguistics) and International Studies. I have an internship with Exodus Refugee for the summer, teaching English classes, and I love it. In the future, I hope to work with refugees and immigrants.
