Research: Examining Women's Employment in Costa Rica
With an interest in gender policies, I am conducting research funded by the University of California, Irvine as an undergraduate fellow. My research focuses on UN programs operating in Costa Rica and women's employment opportunities. I will be conducting field work in San Jose and publishing my findings in Spring of 2018.
Program: Having Difficult Conversations
One of the most important aspects of mentorship is to create safe spaces for conversations on identity and inclusion in a diverse community. I have made it one of my main goals this year to create this environment for the 64 first-year students that I mentor, by developing programs that center around social education and engagement. *Conversation topics include: LGBTQ+ community, race & ethnicity, gender, income inequality, privilege, and ally-ship.
