About the Millennium Fellow
I'm a junior at the University of Pennsylvania studying Systems Engineering and Environmental Science, and I founded Sustainable Solutions with the hope of advancing progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the municipal scale. Apart from my work with Sustainable Solutions, I love playing the violin and basketball, and spending time with my family.
