Did you find S-L, or did S-L find you?
A little bit of both! I took an S-L Advanced Spanish class in 2013 (Katy Davis was my S-LTA – shout out to a wonderful human!). I co-oped with the program in Fall 2015 and I never want to leave! This year I am a TA, a TM and working on S-L faculty development research with Becca Berkey and Barak Soreff.

What S-L classes have you taken?
Advanced Spanish 2 – I did my service-learning with La Alianza Hispana.

What S-L classes have you TA’d for?
Physical Therapy Projects 1 and 2.

What is your favorite memory relating to service-learning?
I got to help plan, work with student leaders and experience the Fall 2015 EXPO – It was incredible to see so many students, faculty members, community partners and S-LSLs coming together to learn and share.

What would be your biggest advice for a first-time service-learning student?
Be open and willing to do whatever the organization needs from you; you are there to learn and support them, not just to do what you had planned on doing.

If you were a television character, who would you be and why?
I would be Lizzie McGuire. I feel like I have an animated character in my head who is constantly narrating things for me, and I would love to hang out with Miranda and Gordo!

What has been your favorite meal you’ve had at an S-L SL meeting?
El Pelon – those plantains!!!

What’s a fun fact about you?
My dad loved fish and I was named after a brook trout so I have a fish tattoo on my ankle!
