Angela Marini - Academic Major: Nursing; Engagement Focus: Community-Based Learning and Study Abroad Service

Angela 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.
