During my time at the International House, I worked each day to promote this idea of cultural connectivity and was brought onto the team to launch the Official Alumni Program for the International House at UC San Diego, aiming to connect
alumni from all over the globe who either stayed at International House during their time at UCSD or who were greatly impacted by the International House's mission.

During my time at the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (APA), a non-profit organization based in Washington D.C. specializing in supporting prosecutors nationally to be able to better perform their duties and uphold, as well as reform, the criminal justice system, I had the pleasure of creating infographics, publications, newsletters, and social media copy for the organization. In designing these media elements, as well as re-designing the APA's website, I was able to assist in rebranding and promoting the organization to over 10,000 prosecutors and members nationwide.
