Her work experience ranges from state-level party politics to non-profit research. She participated in two study abroad courses that include a social justice course at the University of Cape Town, SA and an exchange in the social sciences department at the University of Amsterdam, NL.

She is currently studying a Master’s degree in Development Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London where she is writing her graduate dissertation on collective culture/the arts and social change.
