Why I'm majoring in Urban Studies: I want to explore how people and policy intersect in urban environments. I am especially interested inĀ  public policy, community organizations, and advocacy efforts. As an L.A.native, I am also interested in current developments in urbanization and unsustainable suburban sprawl.

What I like best about Urban Studies: Urban Studies allows me to examine various historical and current processes that affect the everyday lives of a signification portion of the United States and the globe. The interdisciplinary approach gives me both the tools and the knowledge to understand the field in depth.

Other academic interests (major, minors): Public Policy
