How have your Tucker experiences affected you?
The most poignant part of my experience with Tucker has been sitting down and eating dinner with the Haven residents each week. I've learned a lot about rural homelessness, both its causes and about the people it affects. Homelessness in LA, where I'm from, is a completely different situation than it is here, and I had never had the chance to get to know people who've experienced it one on one. It's opened my eyes.

What do you love about the Haven Adult Shelter?
I love cooking, so this program is great for me. Cooking is fun and relaxing, and food is something that everyone can relate to and get excited about. It's a great way to break the ice  and connect with Haven residents and with other Dartmouth students who I might be meeting for the first time.

What would you say to a student who is trying to get involved at Tucker?
There are all different levels of involvement and commitment that you can give to service through Tucker. You can devote hours a week to the same project for all four years if you want, or you can casually volunteer just once through different programs like the Haven Cooking Club, and anywhere in-between. You don't necessarily need to make a huge time commitment, so there's no excuse for not getting involved!

What is one fun fact about you?
During high school I worked in an aquarium and part of my job was to feed sharks and eels by hand.
