I am a 20-something college grad and proud alum of College of the Holy Cross (basically, I bleed purple). I spent 8 years of my life in marching band, so the siren song of drum lines and big brassy bands always piques my interest. I studied history and women’s and gender studies at Holy Cross, so I’m a huge history nerd as well as a feminist.
I am currently serving as an AmeriCorps VISTA Leader in New Haven, Connecticut. I am passionate about changing education outcomes for kids and providing volunteer service to my country. My time as an AmeriCorps member has definitely shaped the way I see the world, and I recommend service, be it through AmeriCorps or JVC or other volunteer organization, to anyone who’s looking to find what they’re passionate about and jump-start their professional careers.
