Angela Marini - Academic Major: Nursing; Engagement Focus: Community-Based Learning and Study Abroad Service
Marini, a UNF School of Nursing graduate from Jacksonville Beach,
Florida, has shown great dedication working with veterans in Jacksonville and the
surrounding communities through her service to the Military Veteran Resource
Center and Wounded Warriors: K9's for Warriors. For the past two years, Angela
has developed meaningful relationships with local and foreign community
partners including Duval County Public Schools, the Way Free Clinic, Brooks
Rehab, and Chiang Mai University of Thailand.
Through these experiences, Angela is (in her words) no longer afraid to
contemplate difficult problems in society because she has learned the skills to
facilitate change on an individual level.
She has strengthened her ability to collaborate with others and therefore
promote respect, diversity and interconnectedness.
