I was a history major in college, so being in Boston was a real treat. Last year I served in AmeriCorps, based in Denver, doing activities from mentoring schoolchildren, restoring a historic cemetery in Houston, promoting energy efficiency in Grand Junction, CO and serving as a first responder to the Joplin tornado in Missouri. That program substantially broadened my understanding of the world. So too did the semester I studied abroad in London. I'd love to return someday, and do more traveling as well.
