Meet Your 2011 Team Nicaragua Delegates: Bekki Davis
"My name is Bekki Davis and I am from Pawtucket, Rhode Island. I am graduate student studying Counseling and Higher Education at MSU. On campus I work with both the Department of Family and Child Studies for my assistanceship and with Equity and Diversity program as an intern. Working with students is my passion and I plan to use my experience with Team Nica as a model in my future career to create programs that educate and empower students to take action. When I take a break from changing the world, I love to dance around my kitchen while singing and baking. One of my favorite quotes is “Hope is knowing that people, like kites, are made to be lifted up."
