As a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow at Wellesley College, I fell in love with both the research process and the power of research to shape more enlightened, more enlivened, classroom discussions discussions that as both a scholar and life-long student I truly believe can shape our world for better by enabling us to communicate more clearly, more deliberately, and more considerately. As a student of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, I look forward to discovering new uses for age-old stories; unearthing just how differently medieval literature handled difference and diversity, using that literature as a measure of modernity and proof of how diversity has always grounded the Western literary canon. I'm so honored to be joining the Gates-Cambridge class of 2020! I'm inspired by the work of my peers and excited to be entering a community wherein we can all work together to pursue not only knowledge, but the improvement of our surrounding world through that knowledge.
