Outside of school, she manages bodybanter.com, an online platform that empowers young people from around the world to redefine their relationships with their bodies through exploring diverse perspectives and engaging in advocacy projects. In her free time, she can be found listening to audiobooks, sweating with her Crossfit community or scouting for the best sushi restaurants in town!
