Ava describes Baltimore as “an enriching city of fun and friendly people, deep history, and cultural influence.” She loves attending college in Baltimore because the city offers her a well-rounded experience. She enjoys meeting people at community events and festivals, having fun with her friends, and taking in all of Baltimore's sites. At Goucher, Ava works as an admissions ambassador and a student intern for the Alumni weekend.
She applied to be a Collegetown Fellow to learn more about Baltimore and find ways to positively impact the community. So far, Ava expanded her knowledge of the systems in Baltimore and how she can then make an impactful change in the community. This opportunity connected her with so many inspiring individuals and has enhanced her leadership skills. Ava hopes to continue cultivating her network and leadership skills after graduation.
