Rebecca Moore '19

My name is Becca Moore, and I will be a sophomore at Earlham College. I am majoring in Human Development and Social Relations. I am very interested in working with younger populations and making a difference in their lives. I hope to become a Child Social Worker someday.

My primary passion is kindness and service to others. I enjoy being a part of the coalition against sexual violence on campus and volunteering in the Richmond community. I am proudly gay and very involved in LGBTQ+ issues while co-convening Spectrum at Earlham. I love climbing trees, writing/performing spoken word, and working towards my mental health recovery.

This summer, I am working at the Your Life. Your Story. program in Indianapolis as a student mentor. This amazing program focusing on building resilience in Latino teens by teaching them how to tell and be proud of their personal story and identity. I am looking forward to using my own experiences with mental illness to show teenagers that recovery is possible and that they can overcome any obstacle. I also am looking forward to the teenagers teaching me about life, and their personal stories. I think I will learn more than I can anticipate from the teenagers I will be working with.

My goal is to instill pride and confidence in the YLYS participants to improve their futures. If I can show the participants of the program just how much they are worth, then all of my work will be worthwhile. I hope to learn more about how to help others and how to love myself from the program and the participants this summer. Above all, the biggest achievement I could imagine would be to successfully inspire and encourage the Your Life. Your Story. teens. I am going to dedicate my full self and effort to them, and I hope that I can truly make a difference. 

About This Internship: 

Intern will participate in planning, implementation, and evaluation of Your Life.Your Story, a summer youth program aimed at increasing resilience and decreasing depression in Latino teens in Marion and surrounding counties. This program consists of a one-week camp-like experience where teens participate in resilience-building activities and arts-based identity-development activities. A second week, Your Life.Your Future, where teens from previous years return for a second experience, is focused on vocational testing, presentations by community professionals, and college preparation sessions.
