A meat-eater turned devout vegan after reading an ethics paper, I am persuaded by the ancient insight that philosophy has a bearing on everyday life. As an undergraduate philosophy student at Princeton University, I aim to use the theoretical tools of my discipline to tackle the real-world problem of sexual misconduct, which I reported on as a campus journalist during the #MeToo movement. Motivated to close a “justice gap” between the rates of rape victimization and conviction, I study the nature of consent, the appropriateness of blame and punishment, and the requirements of justice in cases of rape. My ambition is to change the way we think about and treat rape “in law and in life” to ensure that everyone’s right to bodily autonomy is respected. During my MPhil, I plan to study topics in ethics, philosophy of law, and feminist philosophy, and to continue my learning in meta-ethics, value theory, and social philosophy. In my free time, I enjoy freestyle rapping, powerlifting, and filmmaking. I am grateful to be joining the ranks of Gates Cambridge scholars.
