Stanford BING Overseas Studies Student Ambassador: Stanford BOSP is deeply ingrained in the International Relations Community, and as a student assistant to seven Stanford abroad programs, I act as the physical connection between the Stanford academic community and the programs themselves. I work as a marketing consultant for the program - creating intriguing graphic designs for BOSP material that is then distributed Stanford-wide. I also manage and organize application data of current, future, and past BOSP programs. I oversee the application process, and organize material distribution for each of the six BOSP abroad programs. I also run orientation and required material simulations for the programs and students.
Stanford Law School Assistant: I worked with current Stanford Law professors to organize the distribution of class materials and design a more streamlined program for library resources. I provided Law School and LSAT information to inquiring current and potential Law Students and became deeply involved with the Law community through my proximity to and collaboration with the Department. I additionally aided the Law Library in their campaign to reorganize their materials.
Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies: I managed a team of six teaching assistants and counselors (college level and beyond) to create a positive and interactive 24/7 learning environment for our participants. With my experience in negotiation and international relations, I provided precise lesson plans for the program professors, and worked as an on-call tutor and class facilitator throughout the course. I developed a controlled learning environment for participants, and facilitated mock-debates and projects on political leadership and modern crises control.

AP US HIstory:
HobbiesI played competitive club soccer from elementary school through high school under the Club SC Blues. Captaining my team through 6 national championships, my Club team won nationals twice -- once in Boston and once in Arizona. I was a four-year varsity letter in soccer and captained my team in my senior year of high school - putting Aliso Niguel High school on the road to a national title.
On my free time....I enjoy reading Al Jazeera to get caught up with International politics (nerdy...I know), and I also like to practice my violin. Right now, I am trying to teach myself how to play the piano with the Grand Piano in my Stanford dorm. When I don't have any studies or work (I work as an assistant in the Law School), I like to meet up with friends at either Starbs or Coho on campus. My interests lie in International Politics and Global Insurgency efforts. I am also interested in Arabic as a means of expanding my knowledge of Middle Eastern cultures.
I was president of my HS orchestra for four years and led my orchestra to a competition at Carnegie Hall.
I have three siblings (twins: 12) and a four-year old brother, so Im accustomed to tutoring a variety of ages!
I am currently writing a thesis:
Under the supervision of Karen Kramer, Director of Stanford’s Overseas Studies Program in Berlin and expert on the modern culture and politics of Germany, I have had the opportunity to track how the influx of asylum seekers has influenced the politically and fiscally austere, yet socially malleable and nationally undefined German state. Using a cross-analytical approach, I analyze how majorly destabilizing and demoralizing events such as WWI and WWII effected German nationalism and self-identity in the past, as well as created a culture of shame and a lacking sense of social cohesion. Germany’s position at the forefront of refugee reception affords it external praise and criticism, but has most noticeably fragmented typically well-established civil society movements in the region that has simultaneously reached an apex in self-definition.
The goal of my research is to track how the refugee crisis has undermined European identity, increased civil extremism, and underlined the weaknesses of EU and state institutions in dealing with a crisis of such grand ethical, social, and financial proportions. I will be expanding my research work to include a similar analysis in Paris, France. I will be engaging in a study abroad program next quarter to facilitate this study, Through direct collaboration with the Sorbonne and agencies that are directly involved with the crisis, I will be able to provide a unique perspective on an issue that will, very soon, move across the Atlantic to effect US domestic and foreign policy
I will be studying abroad in Paris from February to April, and have studied abroad in Berlin, so have a wide range of cultural and historical experiences to teach from.
