  • Assisted with workshops for children on the importance of community gardens.
"I’ve enjoyed the conversations  I’ve had with fellow High Roaders because everyone comes from a different background and brings different experiences to the table that really shape the conversations into meaningful dialogues. I think these are the types of discussions some of my professors have tried to have in the classroom setting. But the exchanges are different, and I think more significant, when they come organically."
