Palatine, Illinois ■ Augustana College
Hello there – my name is Nora. I am from Palatine, IL and recently graduated from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL where I studied psychology and Spanish.
I’ve always kind of wanted to do a year of service because I am interested in practicing living out the tenants of BSC and organizations similar to it. But since I took a class on literature written from and about the US-Mexico border and a study abroad opportunity in Ecuador, my interest in BSC has been peeked. I look forward to serving the homeless of El Paso at the Opportunity Center. I hope that through the challenge of this upcoming year, I will grow to have a more complete understanding of myself, the communities of El Paso, and how I might contribute most fully to society.
