" I am excited about being a Millennium Fellow because I want to collaborate with students from other countries who are advocating for educational equity and the survivors of domestic violence. Discussing these crucial issues on a global scale would provide me with an even greater sense of empathy for the immigrant families that I work with. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: English Classes for Survivors of Domestic Violence
I taught English classes weekly to immigrant mothers who are survivors of domestic violence. I also provide them with case management support. We have evaluated the success of this program through routine questionnaires and they will be completing a placement exam again at the end of the semester.
About the Millennium Fellow
Hi, I am a senior at Brandeis University studying Psychology and Hispanic Studies. I am from San Francisco, California. While at Brandeis, I work in a cognitive psychology lab, teach kindergarteners in a nearby synagogue, and tutor international students in analytical writing. During my semester abroad in México, I loved volunteering in an academic after-school program with children whose families worked in the local marketplace. In my free time, I love baking, reading, and being with children. In the future, I plan to work with immigrant families as a clinical social worker.
