Hi Everyone!Julia Neumann | February 14, 2012
I’m Julia, one of 8D’s four fabulous interns! I thought I’d introduce myself to everyone and talk a little bit about what I’m doing as an intern at 8D.
I’m a sophomore political science major, and my favorite thing to do is play ultimate frisbee with the Sneetches. I’m from Louisville, Kentucky, which I also like to refer to as “the best place in the world,” because it would be perfect if not for the humidity and the terrible public transportation. I decided to become an 8D intern because I love the way community service can make me feel connected to a community, especially my own, and I want to encourage as many Haverford students as possible to involve themselves in their community. Food is one of my favorite things, and though my sister is the chef in the family, I can bake with the best of them. This passion for food in my home has led me to a serious interest in food-related community service, and I spend my Fridays at SHARE Food Distribution Center, working with their Farm-to-Families program. I’m hoping to lead a few food-based service days this semester, so be on the lookout in the 8D email!
