got featured in New York Magazine today with a bunch of fellow DC interns. While I wish that more context had been given to my quote (the original question: How did you get interested in politics?), I’m grateful for this interesting opportunity.

Although, this photo does bear a slightly unfortunate resemblance to Gossip Girl, according to some of my good friends…

Nevertheless, all credit for my interest in politics and international affairs goes to my beloved alma mater, Sidwell Friends, which always inspires its students to think critically about big questions across borders, and my parents, who always allowed me to sit at the grown-up table.
