What does community service mean to you?

Come and join us on September 19th, 7-8pm EST to watch Deaf and Hard of Hearing panelists who have volunteered their time to serve in one of AmeriCorps’ programs. At the panel, we will be discussing the panelists’ experience with community service during their AmeriCorps term, their impact on the community, their post-AmeriCorps life and career, and tips and advice on how to join AmeriCorps!

Panelists include:

Joline Durand: She/her (Moderator)

It is my pleasure to introduce myself as Joline Durand. I am a POC woman and deaf.  Having been born in Haiti, I was moved to a new state by the age of five when I moved to Florida. It is the beginning of a new chapter in my life journey and last summer, I worked in Texas (SAAN) for an internship. The things that I enjoy doing are reading manga, webtoons with anything, riding a bike, making art, playing video games, and dreaming about story during nap time. Whenever I visit the Natural Park, I love to hike, and I see all the beautiful parks within the park.

Dahlia Davis: She/her (Panelist)

Hello! My name is Dahlia Davis (she/her) and I grew up mostly in Plainfield, Illinois. I just graduated in May 2023 with my bachelor’s in Linguistics and East Asian Studies in which I focused on translation, global security, and the history of Korean Sign Language. I am currently residing in Seoul, South Korea pursuing my master’s in Korean Unification Studies at Yonsei University. Throughout my undergraduate career I had the opportunity to travel all around the world, and decided that I would continue that exploration by serving in the Conservation Corps Minnesota & Iowa for their 2023 Summer Youth Corps! I was selected through training to serve at Isle Royale National Park as an ASL Crew Leader for an experienced all-Deaf crew. I had a life-changing experience on the island fostering my leadership and team collaboration skills, and am now actively keeping up with the conservation world. Motivated by my summer work outdoors, one of my goals here in Seoul is to hike up Ansan Mountain, a beautiful nature preservation and hiking area right behind my university. I look forward to being more active in the Deaf and hard of hearing space and always encourage adventure!

Taylor Nyugen – She/her (Panelist)

Hello there! I’m Taylor Nguyen, hailing from the beautiful state of Missouri. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance! I served in the AmeriCorps program during the summer of 2023. I was involved in a project focused on conservation, field research, land management, and historical preservation from June 5th to August 12th, 2023. During this time, I had the opportunity to contribute to important work in preserving our natural and historical heritage. Currently, I am a senior majoring in biology. I am passionate about the sciences and have a strong interest in pursuing a career in dentistry. I plan to attend dental school in the near future to further my education and training in this field. In addition to my academic pursuits, I am committed to giving back to the community and continuing my involvement in conservation efforts. I am exploring opportunities to volunteer part-time with the National Park Service, where I can combine my love of nature and my dedication to preserving our national treasures. I am excited about the future and the opportunities that lie ahead, both in my academic journey and in my commitment to making a positive impact on the environment and historical preservation.
