Global Outreach 2013-2014 Board Website Descriptions
Dylan Katz (Treasurer) is a junior from Worcester, Massachusetts (The Jewel of New England) who has an unhealthy obsession with Grey’s Anatomy. He attributes his success in the Parker Brother’s classic game monopoly as the reason for applying to be treasurer. He likes to spend his spare time with his significant other, Netflix and enjoys researching new developments in the academic field of dessert studies. Dylan was a member of GO! New Orleans last year and got addicted to the best drug on earth Global Outreach.
Hanna Tadevich (Programming Coordinator) is a junior from Chicago, double majoring in Dance and English. GO! has been the highlight of her time at Fordham, including projects to Ecuador in 2012 and Dominican Republic in 2013. This year, Hanna is excited to be leading GO! Camden! Other loves include bicycles, being outside, singing along to Queen with her little brother, and chocolate.
Alyssa Carolan (Co-President) is a senior and a New Jerseyan, double majoring in English and Theology. Since getting involved with GO! her sophomore year, she’s been on teams for GO! New Orleans and GO! Nicaragua. When not busy with GO!, Alyssa leads retreats and is involved with Campus Ministry (the Global Outreach/Campus Ministry office in LL217 is her second home!). She loves coffee, her three cats, and not thinking about graduation.
Jaime Rodriguez Jr. (Networking Coordinator) is a senior majoring in Psychology and Latin American and Latino Studies. He first became involved in the GOmmunity through GO! Nicaragua his junior year and learned about the Nicaraguan effort to dismantle the patriarchy. Jaime looks forward to networking with all the homies and organizations on campus to get involved in GO! In his spare time he likes to read books about the history of bananas, eat empanadas, dance in the Dorothy Day Center, and think about his life with James Franco.
Gianna Sciangula (Marketing Coordinator) is a junior commuter from the hippest part of Brooklyn. She had amazing experiences on GO! Camden 2012 and GO! Waynesburg 2013 with some crazy team members, and is only a little excited to be a part of the Board this year. Gianna is sassy and sarcastic, but will fool you into thinking she's quiet and shy. In her very limited spare time, she sings, bakes, ponders the mysteries of the universe, reads, dances (poorly), and spreads her love of and passion for Global Outreach!
Sara McDonough (Communications Coordinator) is a junior from New Jersey. She is currently studying communications concentrating in television and basically aspires to one day be a combination of Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler and Betty White. Sara was part of the spring 2013 GO! New Orleans team and pretty much loved absolutely every second of it. She would also like to note that Global Outreach as a whole is what some might refer to as, “the bees knees.” Sara also enjoys unwinding with any episode of the Golden Girls and anything chocolate.
Mariette Dorobis (Co-President) is a junior from the little land of New Jersey. She was on the GO! Nicaragua 2012 team and the GO! Camden 2013 team. She is currently serving on the Board as Co-President. When not doing GO!, Mariette can be seen helping with technology around Fordham or harmonizing with her roommates. She likes Harry Potter, Nutella, Dance Moms, Christmas, (age-appropriate) pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
Jackie Krakowski (Programming Coordinator) is a senior majoring in Visual Arts for Photography and Communications for Media, Culture and Society- although she wishes she could major in all things GO!. She has participated in GO! Ghana, GO! Nicaragua, and led the GO! New Orleans Spring 2013 team. She serves on the GO! board as one of the Programming Coordinators at Lincoln Center. When Jackie isn't doing something with the GOmmunity, she can either be found wandering the streets of New York photographing or at Chipotle having a transcending experience with some guacamole and chips.
