Community-Engaged Scholarship

I got to meet a new volunteer today from American University - Samiya! It was so lovely to meet her, and she's also from the same area where I'm from, so that was cool to learn. Ife, Ellen, Tom, and I helped showed her the ropes/the basics of how to set up for lunch, prepare lunch, serve lunch, and clean up after lunch. I also introduced her to couple of seniors who I've gotten very close to in the past weeks. I caught up with Elsa about current events, and talked to Diane & Lisa (I'm hoping I'm getting everybody's names right) about the quality of the food that's served to them, as well as emotional check-ins. Courtney told us there was a meeting going on at 2pm in St. Albans about Iona Senior Services, and so the other volunteers and I got to meet a lot of the behind-the-scenes people who run the program and offered to show us around and take a tour of the whole operation one day - super exciting honestly. Then Ife and Samiya went out to Giant to get some turkey (we thought we didn't have enough hamburgers), but everything turned out to be fine. Courtney talked about all of the goodies she has planned for Valentines' Day and that made me so happy - finally the seniors get some home-baked treats. I also saw one of the exercises today that seniors partake in (weight-lifting/stretching with Gerri) and learned that Tom sometimes stays to talk with the seniors about medical issues and quarries that many of them have in their older age about themselves, friends, or family, which I think is really important and a great service that he gives out.

As my first off campus service experience of the semester, me and three other members of GW Baywatchers participated in an effort moving oysters shells collected at GW from D.C. area restaurants to the Maryland Oyster Restoration Center. After moving the oyster shells to a van for transportation, we drove to Shady Side, MD where we deposited the shells for use in the center's oyster setting initiative.

I met with Michelyve, the Swaliga Foundation Research Fellow, to discuss the grantwriting and research process. She is also learning how to write grants as she goes, so I am excited to serve and learn with her.
