For the Spring ’16 and Fall ’16 semesters, I took part in Hampshire College’s Division III senior thesis project where I focused on naming the ways individual growth + healing is intertwined with community wellness + social justice. Below is a deep dive into the parts that made up my whole year. Click on the bold lettering to get more details on each part.
This is a collection of writing pieces that I’ve written over the course of my diiiv.

+ an inclusive wright
This is a presentation I shared with my former boss at the Wright Foundation for the Realization of Human Potential, Barbara Burgess – Wright’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Vision Realization Officer (CVRO).
In response to feedback and criticisms from their students and community members of color, they’ve taken steps toward creating a more “welcoming community.” I shared a different vision I have for Wright moving from making Wright seem more welcoming to instead doing the work to make Wright more inclusive.
