Hello everyone, my name is Danielle Lasley and I have just begun volunteering at RESULTS. I will be assisting with communications work and grassroots planning for the national conference in May. I will be organizing conference materials and researching potential venues and speakers to speak about the importance of combating the TB epidemic. I will also work on news blogs and utilize tools such as Twitter to help spread awareness of RESULTS campaigns.
I am a student the University of Connecticut in the US. I will be earning a bachelor’s degree in Communications and Psychology in May 2015. At the University of Connecticut I have worked as a Psychology research assistant and also work as a waitress. I am part of UConn’s club water polo team and enjoy being a part of student life and the University’s community.
Currently I am studying abroad in London as a part of the Global Citizenship in Practice Program. This program gives students the opportunity to get involved in the community. I am excited to begin my volunteer work at RESULTS because it not only gives me the opportunity to work with the London and UK community but the global community as well. I have always been interested in human rights and am excited to be a part of a team that makes a difference.
