Why San Francisco is Important to Me:After spending many of my childhood summers in San Francisco and attending college in the Bay Area, I see San Francico as the place where I truly grew up. I have always loved its cultural diversity, natural beauty, and sense of social responsibility. The more I learn about the city, the more I am in awe of its innovative and progressive policies. This fellowship gives me the opportunity to learn more about a city I already love, and contribute to what makes San Francisco so great.
Something Unique About Me: I studied abroad for three months at the University of Cape Town in Cape Town, South Africa where I engaged in service-learning projects, went sand duning in the South African desert, and shark-cage diving with great whites.
