Until this past year, I have lived in Los Angeles my whole life. I had the opportunity to attend a French-American International Lycee from grade school until the end of middle school. In the interest of pursuing an American high school experience, I switched to Polytechnic where I furthered my knowledge in languages, culture, and film. Most recently, I have started at Wesleyan University where I hope to continue my exploration of the humanities. The notion of health has become omnipresent, and therefore deconstructing and discussing how we can contribute to a healthier world has become especially important to me.

Social media provide a sort of distorted reality as a result of the algorithms, the feedback loops, and it has resulted in a lower general appreciation for life.
