How has Bonner impacted your time at Brown? Becoming the leader at HOPE has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had at Brown University. I love the fact that this organization combines political advocacy and direct service in an innovative way which touches on the structural causes of poverty and homelessness. Once I graduate, I'm excited to see the new cohort of Bonners who come in and take a leadership positions in this amazing student organization.
