Other projects I'm working on!
Religious War Podcast
My best friend and I began this podcast in October 2019. It's about presenting differences in Protestantism and Catholicism, talking about theology, and discussing religion in culture with a bit of humor. We take loads of playful digs at each other. There are 5 episodes you can listen to right now and we'll be coming out with more soon! Check it out on spotify or any podcast listening platform and be sure to look on our website for the corresponding blog posts!
Songwriting and Performing
2017 European Issues Research Project
I've been songwriting for 8 years and love to perform in front of people. I've been a featured songwriter and monthly winner at the WXPN World Cafe Live Songwriting Competition, headlined at the First Fridays in Bristol Festival, and have been featured at Sawdust Tavern Music Nights, the Pennsylvania Songwriters Association, and other events. My YouTube isn't fully updated, but you can find a few of my performances. I might be working on a special project regarding this soon, so keep an eye out!
In 2017, I traveled Europe for three months with my family in hostels and interviewed people for my Girl Scout Gold Award. I ended up interviewing people from international Girl Scouts, Amnesty International, the Red Cross, and the UN. But the biggest resource came from people she happened to talk to on the street. These "normal" people gave the biggest insight into what was happening in these countries and the videos and interviews span big topics such as the refugee crisis and the crisis of peace as well as small topics such as lowering unemployment in Hungary. The most interesting video was how other people thought of America. The range of opinions, especially following the 2016 election, was impressive and thought provoking. The main subject was supposed to be problems that aren't covered in American media, but after interviewing several people, I realized that it would be on both problems and solutions. After getting home, I edited the footage into videos with main ideas and then created this website to share it and start discussions.
