Team Captain Penn Graduate Students UPenn Dance Marathon 2018


Dearest Family and Friends,

Following my five years of involvement with Dance Marathon at the University of Florida, 

  • I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Family, Youth, and Community Sciences from the University of Florida,
  • I moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and 
  • I began my graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania where I will obtain a Master's in Social Work.

Of course, I was eager to involve myself in Penn DM. Upon discovering that the students here had just held their first Dance Marathon, I was even more excited to help grow this philanthropy, benefitting Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. CHOP is ranked as the 2nd best children's hospital in the nation; the doctors, nurses, social workers, and other employees there do amazing work to improve the lives of children struggling with illness and injury. One day, I hope to work at CHOP or another hospital like it.

For now, I can contribute to this work through fundraising for Penn DM. As in years past, I cannot do it without your help. My love for Dance Marathon has not and will not dissipate. I cannot and will not stop dedicating my lives to the kids. 

The students here are doing incredible work and I am confident that this program will become one of the best in the nation in years to come. I hope you will consider supporting my participation in this incredible cause.
