Millennium Fellowship Project: Alternative Break Immersion to Hope Community Center
The goal of the project was to educate students about the immigration process in the United States and the inequalities and hardships people face who live in this country without documentation. We participated in a homestay with families who work closely with the Hope Community Center, which helps and advocates on behalf of immigrants in Central Florida. Our goal was to learn from Hope Community Center, and the project aligned will with SDG 1 and 10.

My name is Grace Marshall and I am a Junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. I study History and Political Science and am passionate about community development. This passion has taken me to East Africa twice to study bottom-up approaches to sustainable development. On campus, I am involved with our campus' Center for Leadership and Community Engagement as I am a facilitator for our Immersion Program this fall. Not only this, but I am also an intern for our college's president, Dr. Grant Cornwell, and a member of the Honors College.
