Hello!Catherine Brooks '14 | February 23, 2012
Hi there! I’m Catherine, another one of 8D’s interns. Along with a few other staff members, I hail from Baltimore, MD, where the only thing better than the Ravens are our crab cakes. I am a psychology major and economics minor in the class of 2014, but I spend much of my time in the dance studio doing ballet and modern.
I became an 8D intern to encourage other students to break out of the “Haver-Bubble” and experience the broader community. More importantly, I wanted to be able to become more involved in these volunteer opportunities myself! Currently, I am working on integrating fair trade products into Haverford’s every day routine and making us a registered fair trade college. For other service days, I am interested in environmental projects–I have been a vegetarian for the past four years–and working with the homeless population. I will be leading trips to urban farms and gardens in Philadelphia in late March and early April. For more information on these service days, keep a lookout for our posts on the Go! Boards and our Facebook page!
