VOLUNTEER WORK

Girls Rock! DC— 2017-present 

As a volunteer at GR!DC I helped young girls from all walks of life in the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area learn about the history of women in rock. They also learned about gender and cultural identity, band merchandise and promotion, team building, and other important skills young folks need to become rockstars! I also helped form a band, and assist the girls with writing music and lyrics for their final performance at the 9:30 club.

Our Daily Bread Baltimore — 2013-2016

Our Daily helps people who are in need in Baltimore City. From January 1 to December 31, they provide hot meals to the homeless. They also provide several classes on how to get jobs, and get back on your feet. As a volunteer, I help prepare meals, serve meals, and engage with the children.

St.Bernard Project — Spring 2015

During my Spring Break in 2015, I went to New Orleans for a week with Rustic Pathways. Our mission was to help rebuild houses that were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in the Lower 9th Ward. This project truly touched me, and helped me realize how grateful I am to have a roof over my head, along with being able to have my family members. During that week we painted and put in flooring in a woman home almost 10 years after it was destroyed. It was this trip that helped me make my decision to attend Loyola in New Orleans.  I knew that after my experience with Rustic Pathways I wanted to be a part of the New Orleans community.
