Edric joins Emma's Torch as a Princeton Project 55 Fellow with research experience in refugee resettlement in France. For one of his undergraduate theses, he volunteered with two humanitarian NGOs to provide mental health and legal aid to asylum seekers living in the streets of Paris. Past roles have included advocating for Asian Americans and working as a Social Impact Designer to make affordable housing more accessible for low-income, immigrant communities in New Jersey. A native New Yorker, he is ready to uphold his home's rep as the city where dreams do come true.
Edric just received his Bachelors from Princeton, where he studied Anthropology and Creative Writing. (His other thesis was a book of poems.)
