Interests

I got my Masters in Applied Physics in Jan 2013. I started a Masters program in Human Rights in 2015 that will allow me to spend a semester doing human rights work in Ecuador and Northern Ireland. I am very active, I play soccer, tennis, run, love the outdoors, try to enjoy my surroundings as much as I can. I am also very involved in activism, being involved with groups that try to make this world a better place. I love to travel, and try new things.
