Jesuit Volunteer Corp/University of Detroit Mercy in Detroit, Michigan

“VISION (Volunteers in Service Internationally or Nationally) was a big part of my time at St. Thomas. I went on two trips and led two more. Believe the hype about VISION trips. They really did change the way I see the world. I was challenged, my heart broke, I felt angry but I didn't despair because I saw beauty, determination and resilience on the faces and in the hearts of those we worked alongside.

My major and experiences with VISION are what led me to apply for the Jesuit Volunteer Corps. I moved to Detroit for my dream placement at the University of Detroit Mercy in University Ministry. I work with students and help them get connected to service opportunities, apply for alternative break trips, talk to them about their lives and sometimes even bake them cookies. It's the perfect culmination of my major and experiences at St. Thomas as a Residence Advisor and VISION leader.”
