Philanthropy / Volunteering Experience

I grew up overseas in Kenya where I volunteered at the local hospital often. There, I would visit with patients, deliver food, and play with children. Every Sunday I also led community lessons and social activities for kids at a local orphanage. I attended an international boarding high school and served as a junior high mentor. I helped junior high girls navigate academics, relationships, and the complexities of boarding. In college, I traveled to Nicaragua and worked alongside a travel clinic providing testing and basic treatment to rural communities. I also volunteered as a mentor for freshman girls. I fostered close relationships through weekly faith-based discussions/check-ins and social events.
