There, she pitched, researched, and wrote about comprehensive sex-ed for marginalized youth. Soon after, she joined her university school newspaper, 14East Magazine, reporting on mental health, pop culture, and the COVID-19 pandemic. She's gone on to work as a contributing writer for Well+Good, Uterinekind, and GoodGoodGood.
