Kara has done volunteer service at a local hospital to raise funds for medical equipment. Through this, she has received several service awards through her school and through the hospital for her dedication and hours put into the efforts. She first became aware of MCC through the Admitted Student Experience at Lynn University where delegates talked about their ideas and how they have impacted the world. A few weeks ago she traveled to Ecuador with a friend and, for the first time, got to experience the impact that poverty has on people living in a third world country. It was a true moment of realization that made her think about everything she could do to make a difference.
On why she wants to attend MCC2014: "By attending MCC2014 I want to gain a better understanding of myself and other people who share the same goals I do. I want to be a part of something bigger than the typical college scene and do something useful with my time at Lynn. I can offer my experiences I have had with poverty as well as share my ideas with others about how to fight poverty happening all over the world in a realistic way. Also, I would like to stay involved and see more of the world through a less glamorized light so that I can stay involved with the world and bring back my experiences to others in the United States."
Kara, as well as many other student leaders from across the globe, will be joining us this October 10-12th, 2014 at the 6th Annual Millennium Campus Conference. There, they and other students will be exchanging ideas and talking about how to achieve the UN Millennium Goals. in addition, everyone will be able to attend keynote speeches by influential global leaders such as Nicholas Kristof, Dr. Paul Farmer, among others.
