My self-summary
UC Berkeley ---> Peace Corps ---> Political Asylum Office
What I’m doing with my life
I will be going to graduate school in the fall to get a Masters of Public Policy. In the mean time, I am working in the San Francisco Political Asylum Office as an Immigration Analyst.
I’m really good at
I am good at dealing with stress and keeping calm in otherwise sticky situations. I have a very analytic brain and am able to empathize very well with other people(s). I am a very disciplined person and will do something/ stick something out if it helps me achieve what I want.
But this could also just be stubborn-ness. I can also sing very well; I was part of my high school choir when I was in high school, but ask me to sing and the only thing that will come out of my mouth these days are disney songs (I prefer The Little Mermaid)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I’ve really enjoyed reading Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, Into Thin Air and Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, and anything written by Michael Pollan. Most recently I have been reading Foundation by Isaac Asimov, some Kurt Vonnegut, and A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn. While I enjoy reading fiction, I always come back to Non-Fiction in some form or fashion.
TV shows that are amazing in no particular order: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and I am a little ashamed to admit this, but my guilty pleasure is Millionaire Matchmaker.
In college I fell in love with Indian food but Chinese and Japanese food will always hold a special place in my heart.
I love listening to music but don’t have the keenest ear. I like to think that each genre has some good artists and will have a time/emotional state which it relates to.
Six things I could never do without
Excluding food, water, and shelter
• Close friends
• Exercise
• Comfortable pillows and socks
• Stimulating conversation
• Bay Area sports
• A good book
You should message me if
If you are looking for some accompaniment. Sometimes the world can be big and lonely and its nice to be able to share your experience with someone :) If you can have a good time staying in just as much as you can going out.

More so than anything though, if you are a real person – ‘genuine’ real not like ‘not-a-robot’ real; although, I guess that would be a requisite as well. So yeah, no robots.
