I am a fifth year student at Penn State in the Integrated Program (B.A./M.A.) for a dual degree with Comparative Literature. Additionally I have pursued an B.A. in English through the Schreyer Honors College as a Paterno Fellow. My undergraduate research included an honors thesis on the role of English in post-colonial Sri Lanka, after spending a month there as a Global Research Fellow developing an after school English education program for at-risk girls.
