My name is Olivia Hubble and by April 30, 2016 I will be a graduate of the University of Cincinnati holding a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Arts in History, and a minor in Arabic Language and Culture. I have been presented with so many opportunities here at this great institution. Having been part of a study abroad seminars to Dublin, Ireland and Edinburgh, Scotland, a semester abroad in Morocco, participating multiple undergraduate research studies with with the Criminal Justice Department, holding positions within UC's student government (at a college and the wider university level), I feel as though I have really been immersed into the Bearcat culture in the past few years. In addition to these great opportunities I partook in few extracurriculars around campus. I participated in the Bearcat Buddies program through the Center for Community Engagement and worked with the Literacy Network of Greater Cincinnati where I traveled to Roll Hill elementary and Parker Woods Montessori to provide academic assistance and mentoring to K-3rd graders. I hope to to have fully captured my experiences through this portfolio and have given an I have accomplished throughout my college journey.
Just a few months after graduating from the University of Cincinnati I will be joining the AmeriCorps program City Year in San Antonio. Through this program I will be helping to serve underprivileged students and schools, attempting to bridge the education gap. I have chosen this path because of the experiences and opportunities I had as an undergrad and specifically as a part of the University Honors Program--I cannot wait to see how these experiences shape my path in the years to come.
