Erin, commonly known as “Boody,” is a senior from Wallingford, Connecticut. She studies Public Health at George Washington University and has been a volunteer of The Grassroot Project since her freshman year. Growing up, Erin played both soccer and basketball, and currently plays on GW’s Women’s Soccer Team. Her involvement with The Grassroot Project has been a highlight of her college experience and has sparked her academic interests in public health and social justice. Erin loves The Grassroot Project because it is an organization driven by student-athletes and intertwines a few of her main interests: education, sports and public health. After graduating in May 2017, Erin hopes to work for a sport for development organization with the eventual goal of working for the United Nations Office of Sport for Development and Peace.
