What I’m Focused On Now

I am living in Portland, Oregon, enjoying the sun, with the occassional trip down in Corvallis for school, research, speech and debate, and University Legislative Scholars! Yet, because of the pandemic, I am finding lots of time to focus on myself, so I am trying to read more books, listen to more podcasts, and watch more movies. Currently, I am reading What You Should Know About Politics … But Don’t, and I am listening to Up First, OPB Politics, Freakonomics, and 538 Politics. In addition to this, I am starting to explore the state of Oregon and get into nature journaling, which I am absolutely in love with!


Currently, I am finishing my internship with Oregon Wild, and then, I will be back in the Oregon State Legislature as the legislative intern under Rep. Ricki Ruiz. I am also working on a research project, which may go the educational psychology or social psychology route, but we’ll see when the term starts!
