At NYU Wagner, Saye is pursuing a M.P.A. with a specialization in Policy Analysis. Her career aspiration is to work in or with government and community organizations to change the systems and frameworks that marginalize communities. Another career aspiration of hers is to attain a PhD in social policy so that she can move beyond just describing the disparities, but also engage in the ideological debates that can change the narrative of people of color in this country. Saye’s hobbies include volleyball, outdoor activities(swimming,hiking,etc.), food, and reading.
