Some quick background information
I grew up in Arlington, Virginia and attended Mount Olivet UMC throughout my life. I played clarinet in the marching band in high school and swam on the swim team. I was an active member of the youth group at Mount Olivet and participated in multiple mission trips throughout middle and high school. I graduated from Smith College in 2011 with a degree in history and a minor in Middle Eastern Studies. I moved to Philadelphia in August of 2011 and spent one year living and working in Philadelphia trying to figure out my next step. I decided to join the MIssion Intern Program as part of this process.
Where I am
I just moved to Dallas, Texas to spend the next 18 months working at the Workers Defense Project. I am a workers rights advocate and outreach coordinator. Prior to this placement, I served at the Asia Pacific Mission for Migrants for 18 months in Hong Kong. I worked a research and advocacy intern. I experienced a wide variety of cultures, foods and adventures in Hong Kong, and I am excited to live in a new place and continue this learning process.
