Co-op student works to support young girls coping with trauma

Meet James Evans, a linguistics and psychology major, 2018:

“For my first time in Africa, volunteering as live-in support with the Ssese Humanitarian Services has been one giant rush, to say the very least. Only a Northeastern experiential education can prepare you to psychologically support infant to adolescent girls who have survived some form of sexual abuse or neglect. From organizing community events for potential sponsors, to working to help local school administration empower their teachers and students, to even spontaneous 3 A.M. sessions involving a stuffed husky named Bruce. All of it to make sure we can find a stable, secure long-term solution for each girl to achieve her individual dream.”
