I have always believed my West Coast birth and subsequent residency to be crucial errors in my life’s story. So, I fled to New York for college and attended Columbia University, where I entertained many majors before ultimately landing on English Literature and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I examined both subjects via the intersection of film, looking at how gender performativity impacts society’s understanding and expectations of women—creating voyeurs out of viewers, and so on. I expanded my studies outside of the classroom, interning for production companies and even taking time off from school during the pandemic to work as a production assistant for various TV shows and movies. My time in these roles revealed a new intersection—one between creative arts and legal hierarchies. I have ironically returned to Los Angeles to work at Paramount Pictures, where I will remain until matriculating at Harvard Law School in the fall of 2024.
- I hold dual citizenship with the US and Poland.
- Until college, I split my time training as a professional downhill skier and ballet dancer.
- My voice can be heard in a few “Family Guy” episodes.
