Intro-Sociology, Social Inequality, and Environmental Sociology


I received my Undergraduate degree in Applied Sociology with a minor in Psychology from St. Cloud State University, MN (2014). My major areas of study were family violence, deviance, criminology, and racial inequality. After completing my undergraduate degree, I pursued a Masters of Science degree in Social Responsibility at St. Cloud State University (2016), with an emphasis in social movements from both a micro and macro perspective. While attending St. Cloud State University I worked for an on-campus program called C.A.R.E (Community Anti-Racism in Education initiative) that involved public/community awareness and training with an emphasis on institutional racism and white privilege perspectives. In addition, I worked with C.A.R.E in creating longitudinal study which focuses on the International Students experience and identity in navigating within a predominately white state university.
