Why did she join Canes Care? :
“After writing an article about the Canes Care kickoff event, interviewing Dr. Whitely and Dr. Cole-Avent, the mission of the initiative really stuck with me.  While we are all seemingly self-sufficient college students living in one of the most beautiful places in the country, everyone needs help sometimes.  Canes Care seemed like the perfect way to reach out to my peers and community and take even just a small step in helping make someone else’s life just a little bit easier in a time of need.”
