Where do you currently work?
Now, I work in technology and community building through the Local Voices Network, a project that originated out of MIT. We work across the country with convening partners such as libraries, museums, tenants organizations and community centers to record community conversations about what matters to people at the local level (and analyze the content utilizing natural language process, a cutting edge AI technology)—and connect those voices to media outlets to improve coverage and rebuild trust in journalism. I have always been fascinated by how people make meaning of their lives and how they understand both themselves and others - a curiosity stoked through my time as a religion major at Bowdoin College. I truly believe that if our country is to find ways to heal, we have to find ways to be curious about each other—and that happens through learning about personal experiences, not policy positions.
