My last year as an undergraduate at UMASS Amherst consisted of figuring out what was next for me. Never did I think I would be doing a year of service at my Alma mater. But when the opportunity was presented, I definitely considered what a great experience it would be to continue serving in a field that I am so passionate about. Thus far, as a MACC AmeriCorps*VISTA I have been able to network and be a part of the foundation and development of amazing programs for our campus and community. Currently, I am helping build a partnership between Student Bridges and the new Upward Bound program at UMass Amherst. It has been a great experience so far and I look forward to seeing these partnerships prosper.
