I volunteer with an organization called TerpTax, where we file returns for low income families within the community and students for free! I am a Site Coordinator for TerpTax as well as a teaching assistant for a career search strategies class in the business school that works with freshmen students and recrutiers to teach students how to prepare for life after they graduate.

Over the past two years, this place has become quite literally my home very far away from home in New Jersey and I have loved every moment of it.
