I’m an English major and Philosophy minor at Drexel University. Hopefully, the kind of work we did in Haiti will form my future.

After college, I’m hoping to get into Americorps, and from there continue with humanitarian/relief work as a vocation.

What are you hoping to get out of the experience?

A sense of what I can expect in the future and the knowledge that this project will have a lasting positive influence in Jacmel.

Help from friends and family, and money that I’ve saved myself over the years.
