Clubs or student organizations:
Title of senior thesis in Political Science: "The Politics of Sex: Analyzing the Relationship between the State and Gender, Identity and Desire"
Statement: “ Earning honors within the Modern Languages department is incredibly exciting and gratifying after four years of hard work. I have been learning French since I was very young and having the opportunity to study at Union, whose professors have provided so many opportunities to me, has been an incredible experience. While at Union, I have had the chance to study abroad in Rennes, where I will be returning after graduation to work as a language instructor. After, I plan to begin studying international politics at NYU, where I hope to continue combining my two biggest academic passions: politics and foreign language and culture.”
