Bryn Mawr students define success on their own terms and lift up others as they make a meaningful difference in the world.
Amara Gregorek '23 of Queens, N.Y., who is double majoring in English and French, is making a difference with DOROT, a New York City nonprofit organization addressing the challenges of an aging population.
This summer Amara was a Lasting Impressions intern with the group, which she first volunteered with while in high school.
"I was essentially forming intergenerational bonds with older adults of different backgrounds and recording their legacy for future generations through written memoirs,” explains Amara, who spoke to two adults each week and got to know them remotely, through Zoom, or over the phone. Other responsibilities included making accessibility calls to assist clients of all abilities in signing up for Zoom classes based upon their specific interests.
