Her high school education was of the Catholic variety & she learned a great deal about practical daily subversion during her time there. She studied history, literature, & social theory for undergrads, particularly focusing on the 19th century Russian revolutionary intelligentsia. Upon graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in 2010 she moved to Brooklyn within 6hrs.
