I am from New Haven, Connecticut. I am a passionate photojournalist, and I am constantly searching and striving to know more, do more, photograph more and experience more. I mentor inner-city elementary school students to create their own newspaper called the Celentano Sentinel, and I am also a staff reporter for the New Haven Independent. A fun fact about me is that I spent my summer in Peru, where I was attacked by a bull while I was riding a bike in the outskirts of Cusco.

My HERlead Project: Girls Boxing Club

My project will instill the importance of education and a healthy lifestyle in young Latina girls through the Girls Boxing Club, a summer program that teaches elementary school students fitness, boxing and nutrition, as well as literacy and writing tutoring.
