I think that it will also be a good opportunity in which I can develop better leadership and communication skills which will help prepare me for my future career, whatever it may be. Something I would hope to accomplish for others is to encourage others to get involved with community service work. If a student thinks they want to get involved, I want them encourage them too. I have had amazing experiences with my involvement in community service and I would like others to share the same type of experience that I have had as well. My ultimate goal as a Student Coordinator would be to let someone else have a life changing experience through service which will help create “a more just and compassionate world” that Stonehill strives for.

... activities do you plan to be involved in during the 2016-2017 academic year? Given all your commitments, how will you make being a student coordinator a priority?
In the 2016-2017 academic year I plan on continuing my involvement with Lux Et Spes and hopefully becoming a tour guide. I will also continue with my service with Best Buddies at the HOPE House. Since the Lux Et Spes and Best Buddies schedules are pretty flexible, it will not be difficult making my responsibilities of being a student coordinator a priority. I am a very organized and routine person, and usually by the end of the first month of the semester I have a solid schedule figured out. If the student coordinator position does not have a flexible schedule, then it wouldn’t be a problem to plan the more specifics of my weeks/months out around my student coordinator schedule and my academic schedule.

- Maggie Girl of the Streets & Huck Finn Life in the 1800s has taken on an almost idealistic quality in the minds of many Americans. The images linked to this era of our history are, on the surface, pleasurable to recall: one room school houses; severe self-reliance; steam-powered railroads and individual freedom. All in all, we seem to recall a well-scrubbed past. Maybe, as we cross into the next century, it's time to take another look at the so-called "good old days." Two very well written works that help to see the latter side of family life in the late 1800s are Maggie: A Girl Of The Streets and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn....
