, Let’s change the world together.
I am a Global Product Marketing Specialist for the Loyalty & Engagement division at Mastercard. I am committed to telling Mastercard’s loyalty story: from Traveler Rewards to Give with Rewards. A day in my life involves developing value propositions for new loyalty product launches and producing unique B2B2C marketing and sales materials to complement them.
I recently graduated from Boston University with a BA in International Relations with a focus on Security Studies in the Middle East and North Africa. While at BU, I have also studied Economics, Computer Science, Archaeology, and International Law. At BU, I served on the Executive Board of the International Affairs Association (the university’s largest student organization), was the Editor-in-Chief of the International Relations Review, and founded Students for the United Nations (the university’s inaugural UNA-USA chapter). I also worked at the Pardee School of Global Studies.
I am the author of “The Voice of Thunder,” a Young Adult Fiction novel. I am currently working on writing a sequel, “The Dying of Empires,” and am searching for an agent to represent me. I am also compiling and ghostwriting an anthology called “Ignite Your Story”.
I am the Chief Executive Officer of Urban Refuge, a nonprofit that leverages technology and the Google Street Maps platform to connect refugees living in urban spaces with the necessary aid resources around them by breaking geographic and language barriers.
I was the co-founder and President of Global Ambassadors, an organization focused on educating students K-12 about the Sustainable Development Goals through art and technology, and raising funds to build fresh water facilities in local Kenyan communities.
I am a global citizen: I have worked in New York, Boston, London, Beijing, Sydney, and the United Nations. I have conducted research in Istanbul, Bangkok, and New York. I have run or engaged programs in New York, Boston, Sweden, the UK, India, New Zealand, Tanzania, and Kenya. In 21 years, I have traveled globally to 32 countries from Iceland to Costa Rica to Singapore.
I have been practicing Bollywood dance since I was seven years old. I choreographed for White Plains High School’s Jiggy Showcase for two years and danced on Boston University’s award-winning Bollywood fusion team, Chankaar.
I have been recognized for my work by the Coca-Cola Foundation, Zonta International, the Walt Disney Foundation and Claes Nobel, among others.
