Personal Statement

I have my Master's degree in Women's and Gender Studies from Loyola University Chicago. My research interests concern the intersections of gender and sexuality, with particular interest in the LGBTQ community - specifically, transgender and gender queer access to healthcare. I was also interested and invested in issues surrounding human trafficking, particularly for sexual exploitation. I explored the demand side of this issue from a global perspective. 

I am dedicated to the field of women's and gender studies and enjoy critically analyzing how systems of patriarchy, sexism, racism, and homophobia permeate our lived experiences as people on a daily basis.

A few of my favorite writers, scholars, and activists on the subject: bell hooks, Dorothy Allison, Eve Ensler, Angela Davis, Gloria Anzaldua, Jennifer Baumgardner, Amy Richards, Jessica Valenti, Judith 'Jack' Halberstam, Dean Spade, Julia Serano, and Kate Bornstein just to name a few.
