She founded a vocational training program for deaf, underprivileged women in 2013 to provide financial independence by raising money through MiddStart and receiving substantial funding from the Center for Social Entrepreneurship. Since then she has been working on how to expand the program and form partnerships with other initiatives in other countries around the world. In the past, she has interned at CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, Aman Foundation and UWC International.

Recently, she was invited to the launch of the Social Impact Center at Monterey where she spoke about her experience with Social Entrepreneurship along with other Millennial Social Entrepreneurs. Her interests include financial independence, journalism, public policy, gender equality and traveling.
