Future Plan
I will be moving to Boston after graduation to work for Grassroots Campaigns, a nonprofit organization. that helps run political campaigns and fundraising/awareness-raising campaigns for other nonprofits. They were very interested in my involvement with Pride and other student organizations on campus when I spoke with them in my interviews.
Internship
I interned for the Easton Courier, in my hometown in Connecticut and absolutely loved it. I honed professional skills, figured out how to manage deadlines, and learned a lot about the field (and, surprisingly, the political goings-on of my hometown).
Pride
I’ve been involved with Pride all four years. We hosted our first sit-down dinner last year and this year I’m excited to be involved in bringing the AIDS Quilt to campus. I see myself always involved with gay rights activism. What form that takes will be determined, but I don’t ever see that not being a part of me.
Spain
The first time I left the country I left for a semester in Sevilla, Spain, in the fall of 2011. Courses focused on the culture, but mostly we took field trips into the city to learn about the history and culture firsthand.
