Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA
As a freshman, I joined Project Cahir with the intent to help provide the resources to students who need them in order to promote their personal successes, and bring awareness to an often unseen issue. Given how huge the Penn State community is, assuming that poverty affects some percentage of our students is easy. What’s harder is figuring out how to help those students. Working with other members to find solutions and provide resources for these local issues, and bringing awareness to the struggles so many go through is important to me and solidifies my dedication to Project Cahir’s mission and purpose, and my desire to help those around me.
