Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a current junior at Yale majoring in math and physics. Outside of science, I enjoy doing volunteering work primarily through Yale Rotaract, a service-based club that fundraises to provide medical relief for refugees part of the Rohingya crisis. Along with spreading awareness of this refugee crisis through hosting public events, partnering up with international clubs, and attending district meetings, Yale Rotaract also does local service events in New Haven through coat drives, volunteering at soup kitchens, park cleanups, and more! Through this class, I will teach students about this current international emergency and let them know what they can do to make a contribution towards finding solutions for this problem.
