Fern is one of the most incredible and inspiring people I have ever met, and I feel so lucky to have been able to get to know her throughout this year through Adopt-A-Grandparent. I have so enjoyed being able to paint her nails, read to her, and just listen to her tell stories about the adventures she has been on in her life. She has been there for me through all of the crisises and transitions of my freshman year, and has given me so much perspective on this time of my life. I will never forget her advice and insight about love, careers, traveling, and just appreciating each time of your life for the unique opportunities you have.

Gave 25.00 hours between 10/19/2016 and 05/03/2017 with Community-Based Service and Learning, Elders, Elders at Benedictine Living Community, Service Programs
