Its been a while since the last time I wrote, however, there is no better time to write then the present. My break was exhilarating and relaxing. Immediately upon my return home, I began work with my non-profit organization Youth Action on our annual toy drive, college networking event, and Christmas arts and crafts with kids at homeless shelters. I also attended events organized by the Morehouse’s Alumni Association and students who attend colleges within the Atlanta University Center. I attended a reception with Morehouse alumni and a bowling and church outing with students of the AUC. In addition, I attended a Board of Directors meeting for a non-profit called Spark the Wave, which works to ignite young people to become volunteers in their community through summer enrichment programs.

 

I received much guidance and support on summer internships and graduate school planning from Bates professors Charles Nero in the Rhetoric and Theatre Department and American Cultural and African Americans Studies program; Rebecca Herzig in the Women and Gender Studies program. In addition, Czerny Brasuell in the Bates Multicultural Center provided much support as well.  Its great that you can call on great people at Bates to help you even over break.

 

Happy New Year
