This profile was current as of 2016, when she was part of the on-campus Kellogg community.
I've conducted two independent research projects. In Cambodia, I conducted research on international volunteering and investigated through qualitative methods how to make international service ethical, sustainable, and effective. My second research project pertains to entrepreneurship education in Switzerland. Specifically, Switzerland is known for its apprenticeship system at the secondary level and my research examined how the U.S. system can incorporate the apprenticeship model to cultivate entrepreneurs. Both research projects led to conference presentations as well as actionable insight that guided my involvement with campus organization.
I received an internship opportunity from the Ford Family Program through the Kellogg Institute the summer after my sophomore year to conduct research in Nnindye, Uganda. I taught at a high school there and developed financing and growth strategies for the school. In addition, I have also received grants from the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), the Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE), and the Nanovic Institute to conduct aforementioned research on entrepreneurship education and international volunteering.
