Short Biography

Studying Anthropology has enabled me to perceive the world through a different lens. I’ve learnt to notice my personal biases and navigate social experiences with that in mind. Anthropology has undoubtedly helped me become more observant about the typically unnoticed details and to understand people through a more empathetic gaze. My main objective in my career is to put these skills I have acquired into practice while grasping on to new skills along the way. Apart from trying to use my creative skills in writing content, I would like to work in organizations where my research skills and knowledge would come in handy.
