Interests: Cultural Studies, Decolonization, History, Humanitarian Aid, Languages, Linguistics, Religion

I studied French in my undergraduate program due to my fascination with the Franco-Caribbean world. This interest has included me travelling to Haiti on five different occasions, and I hope to return many times in the future. As a historian, my goal is to continue studies in the lasting impacts of decolonization in Haiti, particularly related to the French and Creole languages. Also, my studies include research into Christian history within Haiti, and the diversity of the religion within the country.
