Personal Statement

My primary focus and interests are in the fields of civil rights, education, and poverty eradication. Prior to coming to college, I volunteered my time at varying organizations that involved one or more of the topics listed prior. I first became involved in the community by volunteering at a Battered Women’s Shelter with my family. Additionally, I led my church youth group in a homelessness project where we provided shelter and food for the homeless men during the winter at my local church. My volunteer efforts have continued throughout college as I have volunteered with the Food Bank of North Carolina as well as with local elementary schools. I have also led civil engagement efforts at my university to increase student voter turnout in addition to educating youth on the importance of political activism. These efforts highlight my ability to successfully organize and collaborate with my community to solve social issues.
