Bio: 
I am currently a senior at the University of Oregon, intending to graduate in June. By then I will have my degree in international studies with a concentration in peace and conflict resolution. Coming to school, I knew I wanted a major that would allow me a chance to help others. I have always been determined to be a voice for those who the world has muffled. Since I was a young girl, I have always wanted to help other people. I have been blessed to have such amazing opportunities in my life and I feel that with the great chances I was given, it would only be right if I gave back. With all the negativity that has been occurring in the world, I strongly believe that it is the kind acts of few that have the potential to change the world. By providing simple tasks such as telling someone that they are important and worthy and deserve to be heard, could be life changing to someone who is used to being told the opposite. In high school, I was voted to be captain of both my water polo team and swim team. I took on the leadership role but made sure never let that interfere with the goals of the entire team. As a student athlete, I was forced to learn how to balance my time between academics and sports. That chance has given me the opportunity to know how to prioritize what needs to be done immediately. My hard work and dedication to both my school and academics has paid off in numerous ways throughout my entire life.
Volunteering Experience: 
In high school, I volunteered both internationally and domestically. My international experience was to Mexicali, Mexico in a village called Reacomodo. While my peers went on spring break vacations, I helped repair roofs and interact with the local people and children. Although the trip was only a week long, the lasting impressions that the people of Reacomodo will be with me forever. I have gone on this trip many times and each time, returning to the same village is so heartwarming when the children recognize you and you have a bond. While interacting with the children, we would play sports, whether that be soccer, tag, baseball/kickball, or any other sports that the kids wanted to play. It was fun and so amazing to see that something like sports could bring two people from two different countries together. In high school, I also volunteered in the San Francisco Tenderloin District on some weekends. Whenever the local shelter would have big events that included garage sale, lunch making, a hospital clinic for vision and small health problems, I volunteered. Depending on where I was needed, I would help make lunches or in the medical tent, providing people with the paper work that needed to be filled out. In some cases, the person could not read so I would sit there and read the paper to them and write their response so they could still be seen by a doctor. By volunteering, it made me realize how many people are suffering in my own area and how little people care for them and how they are forgotten. In college, being in a sorority, I have volunteered a lot. Ranging from volunteering at benefits that raise money for different charities or doing more hands on work that would benefit the environment. My sorority raised $8,000 for our philanthropy which provides the training of court appointed special advocates, that their job is to advocate for the child when it comes to a judicial case. Since the judicial system is so overwhelming this person is a solid figure in the kids life, advocating on behalf of the kid and what the kid wants. I am seeking an opportunity to volunteer internationally where I can have a hands on work experience for 3 months. I am taking a break from schooling prior to pursuing graduate school to get a masters in public administration.
Education: 
Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, Peace and Conflict Resolution
Occupation: 
full-time student
Other Skills: 
Expert in Microsoft (word, excel, powerpoint)
Can perform tasks efficiently and high quality
Extremely friendly and outgoing
