|Puerto Rico 2015 Trip Leaders|
Kelsey Henry: Kelsey is a senior from Emerson, New Jersey. She is majoring in Marketing and Operations
Management, with a minor in Organizational & Community Leadership. Kelsey became involved
in the Blue Hen Leadership Program through QUEST, and then went on to become a Peer
Mentor and Quest Intern. She has completed Tier 1-3 and is currently in Tier 4. In addition, she
went on BHLP's first Alternate Spring Break trip to North Carolina. Her favorite aspect from
the trip was building lifelong friendships with fellow participants. This year, Kelsey is extremely
excited to be trip leader for Puerto Rico and cannot wait for an awesome week!
Michael Mazarakis: Hi everyone! I'm Michael Mazarakis, a sophomore from Baltimore Maryland and a die-hard
Orioles fan! I participated in QUEST my freshman year, as well as the alternate winter break trip
to Puerto Rico. I am a Finance and Operations Management double major. Aside from being
an unprofessional food critic, I'm also involved in the Entrepreneurship Club. I really like to try
and stay active, so naturally during my freshman year I overdid it and decided to be a part of
6 different intramural sports teams with my friends. I was at first hesitant to go on the trip to
Puerto Rico because I knew it would be over winter session, but it was one of the best decisions
I made all year! The experience and environment has encouraged me to want to travel more in
the future. I'm sure if you decide to participate, you will also bring back many special memories
from any alternate service trip you attend!|
Daniella Garzon: Daniella is a sophomore from Kearny, New Jersey who is majoring in Biochemistry.
She became involved with the Blue Hen Leadership Program as an entering freshman via
the "QUEST" Summer Leadership Experience program. Focusing on completing Tier 1 and
eventually Advanced Tier 1, she knew the value and benefit of being actively involved in the
BHLP Mission. When she learned she was going to be able to go on the Puerto Rico Winter
Service Trip, she knew it will be life changing. By far the best part of the trip was being tumbled
over by the kids at the Boys and Girls club and maybe the snorkeling, but especially getting to
know each of her trip mates. Next winter, Daniella will be taking on the role of "Site Leader"
for the Winter Service Trip and is already tremendously excited to meet all the new aspiring
volunteers and ok maybe some sun!
