What or who inspired you to join Americorps?
My older sister served as an AmeriCorps VISTA in Minneapolis and would tell me about her experience and how it was the perfect stepping stone into a field that she would otherwise be under qualified for due to a lack experience. Graduating with a focus in the social work field, AmeriCorps was going to be right up my alley and give me experience while also giving me opportunities for professional development.
Something you love to do and or most people don't know about you?
I really love to cook, I’m always looking for new recipes to try out at home with friends. I also like to rock climb and hike when I can find time for it!
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
If I could travel anywhere I would go to Budapest, Hungary. There is so much beautiful architecture there and it is also very affordable which makes it very attractive to me as a VISTA! I also really want to visit Croatia sometime, more specifically the coast of Croatia.
