"When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?" Eleanor Roosevelt
I am fortunate to have earned a law degree in addition to my calling as a writer. I believe it is my obligation as a human being to use my degrees to help create justice in our world. To this end, I am a proud member of PEN America, an organization standing for free expression, and I am the Associate Director | Urban Law Fellow for Fordham University School of Law's Urban Law Center, where I collaborate with cities across the globe, to shape law and policy towards greater community support. I have taught creative and expository writing to Columbia University students, alumni, and the surrounding community through the Columbia University Artist/Teachers Program and I am presently creating a space where law and art need to connect, through the Gender Narrative Project.
