UW Bothell Alert

The SR-522/I-405 exit ramp to the south entrance of the UW Bothell/Cascadia CC campus will be closed beginning Wednesday, Sept. 17 until further notice. Drivers are advised to take the Beardslee exit (195th street) as an alternative.

I’m currently a Volunteer Programs Coordinator for Seattle Works, a civic engagement nonprofit that connects volunteers, develops emerging leaders and inspires dialogue. After graduating from UW Bothell June 2012 with a BA in Global Studies and a minor in Human Rights, I realized that I wanted to work at an organization that encouraged engagement, since many of the courses I took taught me that people weren't involved in issues that affected their communities as much as they should have been. I also began volunteering as a part of my Human Rights minor requirement, and it just further strengthened my view on community engagement.

My next step is graduate school—I am moving to London and will be attending University College London for my MSc in International Public Policy this coming September, where I hope to build on what I have already learned at UWB.
