Where are you from?
Brooklyn, NY

Where are you working this year?
Once a week I intern at St. André Bessette, a day shelter that provides food and clothing to people experiencing homelessness & poverty. Twice a week I volunteer at Outgrowing Hunger, a non-profit that helps empower low-income families to grow their own food through community gardens. I also work at Habitat for Humanity two days a week.

Favorite way to refer to Tivnu participants: Tivnunik

Favorite thing about living in Portland:
The feeling of uniqueness. I love the “be who you are” culture of Portland, and the embracing of weirdness.

Favorite Tivnu activity so far:
I’ve loved the community building activities with Eddy. I love when we all work together for a common goal.
