Hello! My name is Elizabeth McConnell and I am an incoming senior at Burlington High School. A fun fact about me is that I am a huge dog lover and currently have four dogs. I am delighted to say that I will be working under the Peacework Internship this summer. I became especially interested in peace and social justice issues earlier this year following the school shooting in Parkland. I went to the March For Our Lives in D.C. with the Peace and Justice Center and fell in love with the organization’s passion to make change. I have since immersed myself in the world of peace and justice and am excited to dedicate my summer to learning more about and working with a wider variety of issues pertaining to peace and justice!
