Why did you join AmeriCorps?
A few years ago I decided that I wanted to dedicate my life to somehow serving others, doing something bigger than myself, [and] that's when I decided to apply for Teach For America. I was introduced to it after I studied abroad, and I knew that it would work out if it was meant to be.
What is your favorite part of national service?
I think giving back to our country is a way to not only help out our American brothers and sisters, but also remind ourselves what a wonderful place we live in.
What is your favorite thing to do when you are not serving/working?
I love to play golf, run, go hiking, eat, and play with my puppy.
What is your favorite snack?
What is your favorite soda?
What are your plans after AmeriCorps?
After I finish my commitment with Teach For America, I plan to continue teaching.
