I am a rising senior pursuing dual degrees in public health and emergency preparedness, while also beginning work on a master’s of public health. Along with Outreach Tulane, I serve as the Chair of the CACTUS Council, helping guide and support all student-led community service efforts from Tulane’s campus. Outside of Tulane, I work as an EMT in one of New Orleans’s emergency departments and am an active volunteer with the city’s Medical Reserve Corps, American Red Cross, and a handful of other non-profits. To me, the best part of Outreach Tulane is the opportunity it gives us to introduce new students to our love for public service from the very first weekend they arrive.

I’m a rising sophomore at Tulane, born and raised in the DC area.  I joined Outreach Tulane because I wanted to make a difference in my new NOLA community, and I wanted to help pop the infamous Tulane bubble. I am also vice chair of administration for the cactus executive board this year. In addition, I’m the secretary and head of slytherin for the Harry Potter club, member of SAPHE, and I will be a resident advisor next year. In my free time, I love to watch Netflix (currently on Hawaii five o and law and order svu), and I love to hang out with friends.

Hey guys! My name is Lauren and I’m from Marlboro, New Jersey. I am so excited to be a part of Outreach this year! As a sophomore in high school I started my own non-profit organization called My Hometown, which assists social service agencies, including the soup kitchen, food pantry, and tutoring centers in my town. I got involved with Outreach because I thought it was the perfect opportunity to continue my passion with helping the local community. Other than Outreach, I am involved in the community service fraternity, APO, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and Tulane Hillel. I also tutor high school students for the ACT/SAT in New Orleans through the program Upward Bound. Being a part of Outreach my freshman year was super fun and definitely a highlight, so I’m excited for you all to join us this year!

Hi everyone! My name is Jianna. I am a sophomore Marketing and Management major from Boston, MA. In my free time, I write for Spoon University and explore the culture and food of New Orleans. I am also a part of Sigma Delta Tau. In NOLA I have volunteered at Arc of Greater New Orleans, where I helped sort Mardi Gras beads for people with disabilities, and Trinity Catholic Community, where I tutored elementary schoolers of Inner New Orleans. I didn’t participate in Outreach Tulane my freshman year and really regretted it. But I am making up for it by being a part of the team this year. I absolutely love New Orleans, so it feels great to give back to this amazing community. I hope you join us at Outreach this year!

 Hi guys! My name is Margo and I’m a sophomore from Indianapolis, Indiana. On campus I am the events coordinator for Tulane University Neuroscience Association, work as a DSC, and am involved with Best Buddies, Premed Society, and Kappa Alpha Theta. I also volunteer at Tulane Hospital as a Stroke Companion. I have had incredible opportunities to serve others through Tulane Alternative Breaks and Global Brigades this past year, as well as attending Outreach Tulane. I think community service is a valuable experience for both those who receive the service and the volunteers, as it unifies students and encourages us to engage with and contribute to the city we call home for four years. I am excited to become a more active member of the community through Outreach Tulane 2018!
