Kirsten Parr '20 sent in an Augie A photo from Juneau, Alaska, where she is working with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest AmeriCorps program. She wanted to serve and live in a different place before deciding on graduate school. "Life is supposed to be a series of adventures and embracing the unknown," she says. "I’ve absolutely loved the people I’ve met so far and the kids at the youth center I serve at are just so fun and energetic!"
