Meet Florence

  • Comfortable with pets

I'm a 22 year old part-time student at GW, originally hailing all the way from Anchorage Alaska. When I was 16 to help cover the cost of my ballet classes I began helping out with dance intensives and camps at my local studio, cultivating a love of movement, as well as self-confidence and discipline. Around this time my sister also graduated and moved to college, and I became the go-to neighborhood babysitter. I discovered a love of working with children and pre-teens, particularly the power of their curiosity! I became more interested in care-giving, and was lucky to be accepted into my high-schools special needs peer-mentorship program where for 1 class a day I would help implement lessons and assist in day-to-day needs with special needs students, as well as helping develop social and life skills. When I came to GW I participated in Jumpstart, working with 3 and 4 Read more year olds who come from primarily English as a Second Language backgrounds in literacy development. I'm a few years out from regular babysitting, and excited to get back into it! At GW I am presidential scholar, an alumni of the Women's leadership Program and the Global Bachelor's Program, through which I completed three semesters abroad in China, South Africa and the Netherlands. I'm a flexible program solver with a strong sense of responsibility and ability to remain cool under pressure.
