"I’m lucky to be able to work with BHW this summer through an Americorps VISTA program, which, for those that may not know, is a government-sponsored organization that sends people out into communities to do good work. I’m from the Burlington area, grew up here, and although I get to travel a lot, know that this is my home. AT BHW I get to practice grantwriting, do community outreach, and plan events, among other things. Some of my other projects include owning Angelica Music and its online music magazine. I’m also a musician, writer, and poet. Invest in your local music community! Thanks A*VISTA and thanks BHW."
