Peris Lopez

Center Operations Intern (Graphic Design)

Peris Lopez is a sophomore in the School of Foreign Service focusing her studies at the intersection of art, education, and global equity. She is the oldest of three siblings and is from Tucson, Arizona. Peris hopes to create a curriculum to teach kids through creative expression. She believes the competitive nature of the American school system pressures people to disconnect themselves from humanity. Her efforts aim at dissolving the right/wrong binary by replacing it with open-ended learning methods so that humans progress towards a more equitable, global, community. Peris currently works as a tutor and an artist.
