I want to be a ServiceCorps Fellow because I am passionate about serving others. This past year, I have thought a lot about the person I want to be. I do not want to be defined by a professional title or salary. I want to be compassionate, driven, empathetic and honest, and remembered for the impact that I have made. I am serious about making a difference, and ServiceCorps would provide a strong foundation for continual social change. Being a Fellow would allow me to begin a new chapter of my life and to dedicate it to service. Creating social change would not end after one year. The leadership skills and training are immeasurably valuable. I want to be a ServiceCorps Fellow because I want to be a part of a something bigger than myself. I want to be a part of company revolutionizing the traditional post-graduate career plan.
Elizabeth Cromie is graduating in May from southern Methodist university with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. Elizabeth was inspired to pursue a career in civil engineering due to her love and appreciation for architecture and math. Through these four years, her interests have developed and changed. She will be joining Citi as a Citi Technology Infrastructure Analyst in 2017. She is passionate about traveling, being outdoors and cooking new recipes. She loves spending time with her friends and family, and she misses her dog dearly. For Elizabeth, the most enriching parts of college have been studying abroad, being involved with Make A Wish, and working as a facilitator and mentor for Embody Love Movement, a nonprofit organization focused on empowering young women. Elizabeth is very excited to join the ServiceCorps team and to see what the next year holds. She is looking forward to the unique growth opportunity and the challenges that learning experiences often present. She cannot wait to build new relationships, to learn more about the nonprofit sector, and to learn how to best leverage her personal social impact.
