Which New Orleans community organizations are you involved in?
My two main New Orleans organizations that I am involved in are Children’s Hospital of New Orleans and NOLA 4 Women. I was an intern at the New Orleans Children’s Advocacy Center (NOCAC), a part of the Children’s Hospital, and have helped out with their family friendly event “Boo at the Zoo”. I am currently an intern at NOLA 4 Women where I research data that depicts the current status of women and girls in various categories, such as economic security, access to education, or healthcare availability.
Describe yourself and why you wanted to become a Community Service Fellow:
Growing up, my parents made a huge effort to really instill a personal love and appreciation for doing community service and activism for efforts that you feel passionate towards. In high school, I was the founder and President of our Interact Club, a group that worked with the local Rotary club on various service projects throughout the community. When I was looking at colleges, maintaining my connection with service and likeminded individuals was a really important goal I had. I loved that Tulane is so service oriented, and was excited about the chance to be apart of a group that was so dedicated and passionate about helping others.
