I was a Theatrical Arts major at Salem State a few years after which I traveled for a year performing in the Up With People program. I have lived and worked around the U.S.A. Mexico, and Japan. I studied business for three years in Hawaii. and I would like to volunteer and finish my degree before searching for work. I am from Lynn and proud of it ! I would like to move back to the area and volunteer for Raw Art Works. I have a niece that participated in the art program there in Lynn a few years ago and she enjoyed it very much and she is in college now with a 4.0 GPA !
