As a first year student at Salve Regina Morgan was introduced to the needs of the people on Aquidneck Island through the Feinstein Enriching America Program’s Service Plunge. After that life-changing week, she began to become involved with the Center for Community Engagement and Service, which led to becoming a Service Advocate at Child and Family Services. Through this work, Morgan became aware of the difficult environments for those in need on Aquidneck Island and beyond.

Personal Statement

Since my arrival at Salve Regina University, Fall 2020, my love for serving the community has only grown. I began my service journey as a participant in the Service Plunge and quickly joined the Service Advocate program working at Child & Family Services. As a teacher's assistant in the Sandpipers program, I began with the Pre-K class, and moved to the infant room in the Fall of 2021.While at Child & Family, I held two Christmas drives to provide classroom materials. In the Spring of 2021, I was able to assist with sending homeless children on Aquidneck Island to April and Summer camps, through providing camp essentials to allow for a traditional camp experience for children and their guardians. I was a recipient of the Vision of Mercy Scholarship for my advocacy addressing the Critical Concerns of Mercy through work I completed in the 2020-21 school year. I am currently a Service Advocate working at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence in the Child-Life Department. The Newman Civic Fellowship will provide me with the ability to expand my outreach in the community and strengthen my connection with the University and its community partners so future advocacy can continue to be successful.
