“I spent six weeks during the summer of 2012 in Busua, Ghana with a program, called ‘Teach on the Beach,’ working with underserved youth. It was incredible to see how members of our greater community learn, and to grow reciprocally with them. I was given a unique chance to live among and serve these people, and it gave me a far greater appreciation for the opportunities that have been given to me.

Allegheny has definitely challenged my beliefs. Since my work with the youth and families at Forest Green Estates, a low income housing community, my entire outlook has changed. I have realized my passion for strengthening community in many different ways, such as a building, cleaning, playing music and games, or tutoring, and I hope to continue my work after graduation.”
