Katie GulakHello, my name is Katie Gulak and I am currently a senior here at Manhattanville studying Theatre Education. Upon transferring here I applied for, and fortunately received, the Duchesne Scholarship. Being granted this scholarship I was given the chance to take on more responsibility and also have the ability to take part in numerous community service and social action events on and off campus. I took part in the Breast Cancer Walks on campus and really was able to experience the community vibe. I also was drawn to the various Global Citizenship events and informative sessions that either discussed our multi-cultural world or a trip that a group of students took for community outreach. The topic of diversity interests me and it is always inspiring and fascinating to learn about different cultures.

Geoffrey  RugarabamuSalam,

My first community experience was in 1997 when I joined the First Aid club in my primary school. The club was responsible for providing minor first aid help to injured athletes during sports events. I then became a registered Youth Red Cross member in 1999. The position enabled me to attend different Red Cross youth conferences held semi-annually in different regions in Tanzania, my home country. The satisfaction from serving fellow youth in orphanages, hospitals and from under privileged families was inexpressible.
