For a long time, I’ve always wanted to learn more about global issues around the world, but I didn’t want to do it simply by reading newspapers or watching the news. I wanted to help people, be directly involved somehow, and join the movement to fight social injustice. A friend told me about EV, and I knew that it was exactly what I wanted to do – EV not only focuses on the local community, but it strives to help people globally.
As an intern at EVSS, I focus mostly on journalism and photography. I work to bring more news-related content to the Service Scholar blog, and I shoot photos of the EV office and events to capture the spirit of the EV community. I've only been here for a few weeks, but I already love working with everyone and I can't wait to see where this goes!
