Natalie is a senior living in Eliot House concentrating in folklore and mythology with a secondary in ethnicity, migration, and rights. She is from northern New Jersey, where she was president of her high school’s chapter of Equality Now, and she was named a national ANNpower Fellow as a junior. 

At Harvard, Natalie interns at the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau’s Eviction Clinic, which helps unrepresented tenants facing eviction in the Greater Boston Area, and she also volunteers weekly at the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter. In addition, Natalie is the president of the Harvard Archery Club and the co-convention chair of Vericon, a science fiction and fantasy convention run by the Harvard-Radcliffe Science Fiction Association. Last summer, she interned at the Consortium for Gender, Security, and Human Rights, a nongovernmental organization (NGO) based at UMass Boston whose mission is to help bridge the gap between academia, policymakers, and practitioners in the fields of women, peace, and security. This past summer, Natalie interned with New York City’s Goddard Riverside Community Center Law Project, which provides free legal representation and organizing support to low-income individuals, families, and groups of tenants in Manhattan to preserve affordable housing and improve living conditions. She hopes to work one day in public interest law as an advocate for human and civil rights.
