Hey there! I’m Joanna, a junior at Penn studying Urban Studies and Mathematics. I came back to school after a gap year spent learning about startups and teaching high school students design while I lived in Portland, SF, NYC, and Oahu. At school, I’m a barista at a coffee shop on campus, dance in a student-run dance company, and foster community among Penn transfers (among other things). 

I’m passionate about education, storytelling, and at the intersection of these, journalism. I love asking questions, talking to people, and the Oxford comma.
