Kristene graduated from Princeton University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy and International Affairs. While at Princeton, she served in a number of leadership roles where she organized large-scale events with campus ministries and her a Capella group. At the same time, her undergraduate studies fostered her commitment to community development. During two summers in Cleveland, she enrolled Cleveland residents in Medicaid and contributed to community outreach efforts at Neighborhood Family Practice. Furthermore, Kristene’s tutoring jobs over the years have reinforced her desire to work with youth. She currently organizes youth events and mentors teens at her church. Along with the chance to apply her event-planning experience, passion for youth and commitment to community work, getting to revive her high school soccer skills has made Kristene’s time at America SCORES especially valuable to her.
