Natalie is a recent alumna from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she studied English literature and Classical Civilizations. After graduating cum laude and with high departmental honors from the UCLA Department of English, Natalie became interested in a career in law and advocacy.
At UCLA, she spent the majority of her time working on various research projects, from researching ocular movement and facial recognition to researching the emergence of global warfare in the 19th century through Lord Byron’s poetry. She was involved in various mentorship programs helping young women with academic opportunities and soon-to-be first-generation college students with their applications.
Additionally, she was dedicated to her efforts in political advocacy for the Armenian-American diaspora through her work in the Armenian Students’ Association where she launched news literacy campaigns and social media initiatives to promote awareness for Armenian-related causes. She also organized local cultural festivals, including Unplugged, to showcase the acoustic talents of students for the UCLA community. After graduation, Natalie has chosen to stay involved in her community by participating and hosting weekly advocacy workshops through Zoom.
In the future, Natalie hopes to pursue a meaningful legal career and she is excited to be part of the Cader Adams team.
