By hosting events that put undergraduate students in contact with the Study Abroad facilitators and encourage them to utilize campus resources to attain passports. I also aimed to encourage minority students the explore beyond the U.S and gain more worldly experiences by bringing minority Peace Corps members to speak and share their revolutionary experiences. These events encouraged environmental responsibility, increased interest in world travel and empowerment of students to trail-blaze global impact. nnWe also diligently fun-raised and collected sanitation items to send to Liberia during the breakout. We collaborated with the NAACP and UNICEF chapters at Kent State University. With the help of the Eta Beta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, the first international chapter of the sorority located in Liberia, we successfully sent all fund-raised items and cash to the chapter to distribute to community members in need and in efforts encourage prevention.","University of Colorado Boulder","Student Assistant at the University of Colorado's Environmental Center","","Education","University of Colorado Boulder","Assistant","Assistant for the Office of Diversity, Equity and Community Management at the University of Colorado Boulder.
