Elizabeth wrote her honors senior thesis on the Hyphy Movement as it relates to low-income communities, and also wrote a supplemental research paper in D.C. on the America’s College Promise Act. She is particularly interested in the intersection of poverty, education, and inequality. She hopes that her professional and academic accomplishments can be used to help better serve the Bay Area, her lifelong home.
