Becky’s Fund Welcomes HelenFebruary 5, 2015
Hello, my name is Helen Conway and I am the Programs and Communications Intern with Becky’s Fund for Spring 2015. I am a senior at Georgetown University, studying Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies.Originally from DC, I grew up in rural Maine on the water. I come to Becky’s Fund with experience in education and community mental health. While I have always been engaged with women’s health issues, I became keenly aware of domestic violence issues following a class last semester. Through my internship with Becky’s Fund, I look forward to learning more about the cultural, political and economic systems that lead to domestic violence while also supporting and empowering survivors. I am particularly excited to help with the development of educational programming that empowers young people to be leaders in the movement to end interpersonal violence.
Upon graduation from Georgetown, I plan to pursue a career in social work, working with the most underserved populations to empower them through quality mental health care. In my free time, I love singing with the Georgetown University Concert Choir, improving my cooking skills, practicing yoga and reading.
