About Me

Havana, 2018

I write about education, immigration, and identity. My work has appeared in publications including The Atlantic, Guernica, Harper’s Magazine, The New York Times, NPR, and The Washington Post Magazine.

Before becoming a journalist, I taught elementary school in Boston and Guatemala’s Western Highlands. I have a BA in Anthropology from Harvard College and an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from the Lynch School of Education at Boston College. I have studied writing at the Yale Writers’ Workshop, the Tin House Workshop, and the Sewanee Writers’ Workshop as a Tennessee Williams Fellow in Non-Fiction.

I live in Brooklyn.
