let's about inclusion.



about me.

I'm a Fulbright Scholar and MIT Sloan Fellow and I love to find new ways to solve complex social challenges. As a social entrepreneur, I’m mostly passionate about inclusion. I fight for those who are often the most excluded from our societies. And so, I started a social enterprise called, Uncomfortable Revolution, a media platform on a mission to change the way we talk about chronic illness or disability.  As a woman of color living with mental illness, I’ve made it my life’s mission to fight for disability inclusion.




I live to tell stories…especially the ones that matter. I started working as an educator, and spent two years working globally as a professional artist. I then got into NGO marketing and communications, telling stories about some of the world’s biggest crises. I eventually ended up at the UN Refugee Agency, where I spent 3 years working on refugee innovations and narratives. After a year at MIT as an Innovation and Global Leadership Fellow, I co-founded Uncomfortable Revolution, a social enterprise that wants to use media and narratives to make our societies more inclusive and accessible. Our theory of change is simple: media representation matters in the battle for equality and inclusion.

It is no longer acceptable to not have women at the table. It is no longer acceptable to not have people of color at the table. But, no one thinks to see if the table is accessible.
