I have a Bachelor's degree in psychology and a minor in biology from the University of Miami, Florida. I am currently a MA student in the Clinical Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling program at SFSU. As a student in this program I have been avidly seeking out experiences that further connect me to the disability community and the people within it advocating for change. In my search I happened upon the Paul K. Longmore Institute and was struck by its mission to reimagine portrayals of disability. I volunteered at Superfest in 2015 and was floored by the event's inclusivity and rich variety of disability narratives showcased. Since then I have served as a judge for Superfest and I'm excited and honored to be a part of this team in the pursuit of celebrating complex and challenging representations of disability in our culture.
