Summer Stories

Madelyn Bagby, Senior, Volleyball

“I spent 10 weeks in Burkina Faso volunteering for an NGO called Friends of African Village Libraries helping organize and run summer reading camps for fifth graders at a rural village library. It was an incredible experience and I will never forget the eagerness of each child to learn as well as the openness and warmth of the Burkinabe people in general.”

“This summer I went to Santiago de Chile for three weeks and tried out for the U-20 Chilean Women’s National Team. I made the team and the hope is to play with them in the South American U-20 Cup in Columbia this upcoming January and February, which is the qualifying tournament for the U-20 World Cup.”

“This summer I worked for a human rights NGO in D.C. called TASSC International, which works with and for torture survivors, helping them to start new lives in the U.S. and working to stop governments from torturing around the world. It was a great internship for me because I want to become a human rights lawyer.”
