Camp Ton-A-Wandah

Counselor & Public Relations Assistant
As a counselor at Camp Ton-A-Wandah, I utilized and strengthened my communication and problem-solving skills with children, parents, co-workers and superiors by addressing situations and achieving mutual objectives. As the director of Camp Ton-A-Wandah’s Dance Arts Program, I taught over 500 campers ages 5-16. I also coordinated with assistant teachers on class curriculums and final recitals, which took place at the end of each camp session. As a public relations assistant at Camp Ton-A-Wandah, I helped manage the camp's Tumblr social media account and published blog posts for the account. This helped to create awareness about upcoming camp activities and the daily lives of campers.

Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity

Sisterhood Relations Chairman
As the sisterhood relations chairman, I coordinated logistics for the sorority mentorship program, which paired upperclassmen with freshmen during the first two months of the academic semester. The program helps to create new relationships and helps new members become acclimated to university life. I also facilitated and presented at weekly sisterhood meetings and planned events to create strong bonds between sisters. A large part of this position involved collaboration with regional retail suppliers to design personalized merchandise for the new members and maintaining the budget sheet for these expenses and events throughout the semester.

Project Uplift

Volunteer / Member
I had the opportunity to be a member of Project Uplift during my years at Auburn University. I collaborated with Auburn University students to train and implement the best practices in counseling and mentoring children ages 5-12. I personally served as a big sister to a seven-year-old brother and an eight-year-old sister. I met with my little sister and little brother each week to spend time together and mentor them through life. Project Uplift was one of the most rewarding experiences I had in college. To have young children look up to me as a role model was such a large responsibility and has helped me to grow into a stronger individual.

Operation Smile

Volunteer / Member
Operation Smile is a non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds to provide free surgeries to children with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. As a member of this club at Auburn University, I collaborated with a group of 63 members to raise donations in the hopes of restoring the smiles of children around the world. It is our club's mission to raise awareness and funds for Operation Smile in an effort to reach out to these children across the globe.

The Food Bank of East Alabama

As a volunteer at The Food Bank of East Alabama, I worked alongside a team to coordinate a system for the collection and distribution of food to those in need. I helped unpack boxes of donated food and stock the shelves of the store front for shoppers. The food bank is set up like any typical grocery store, so I was able to help shoppers find what they needed for themselves and their families. I am so glad that I was able to play a small part in alleviating hunger in East Alabama during my time as a student at Auburn University.
