St. Anthony, Minnesota ■ Macalester College
My name is Meredith Rolfs Severtson. I grew up in St. Anthony Minnesota and graduated from Macalester College in St. Paul in 2017 with a BA in International Studies. I’ve chosen to spend a year with BSC because it appeals to my interests in social justice, immigration, and intercultural communication. I’m excited for this opportunity to engage with immigration as a lived experience and to gain greater understandings of how communities and individuals can be made stronger through service.
