I'm a graduate student at Fordham University, getting a Masters in Social Work and living in the Bronx.

Thanks for visiting my page!

I have created this fundraising page to help off set the costs of a two week service immersion project that I will be chaperoning this summer through Global Outreach.

Over the course of my Fordham career I have partaken in Global Outreach projects to do service and immerse myself in social justice issues; learning about HIV/AIDs in Nashvile, living among the Navajo tribes in Utah and last year becoming aware of the alcohol and domestic violence issues that exist in Bethel Alaska.

Global Outreach has changed and shaped my life in many ways. It has taught me that Social Work is what I want to dedicate my life to, has emphasized the importance of the human connection and most importantly, it has highlighted that service is not something reserved for short term immersion projects; it is a way of life.

Because of the connections I made with people, the need that I witnessed and the amazing cultural experiences that I had in Bethel last year, in addition to all that Global Outreach has given me, I am eager to return and help facilitate this experience for a new team of ten undergraduates.

As a poor social work graduate student I cannot make this journey on my own -- any support you can give I would greatly appreciate! If you'd rather mail a check or if you want a tax-deductible receipt, please contact me.

Thank you very much for your time and I'll be sure to keep you all updated on my journey!
