Anarkalee is a fresh graduate of Mount Holyoke living in Boston, MA. When she is not spending time watering her dream of becoming the intellectual brainchild of Howard Zinn and Arundhati Roy, she is indulging in unhealthy amounts of caffeinated beverages and wishing for her old tropical lifestyle back. She is interested in exploring the role of gender in development, and ways in which we can leverage new technologies to empower women. She would like to one day stop being asked why she thinks women matter so much.
