Alaina grew up in rural New York, but recently moved to Illinois with her fiance. She has a B.A. in Human Development, and is hoping to learn more about the culture and opportunities Evanston has to offer. Her goal by the end of her term as an AmeriCorps Y.O.U.th Serve Member is to have a holistic understanding of the community she lives in, and to build skills in classroom management and leadership.
In her free time, Alaina enjoys reading/writing poetry, visiting new places with her fiance, and playing with her bunny, Pip.
