A Timeline of my youth BORN

Third Grade Started my first protest over unfair conditions in a medieval simulation in the classroom. Realized my calling for community change. Eighth Grade Received my first paid web design job and founded “Design with a Y,” a web and graphic design consulting “company.” Freshman Year of College Started my job at the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library as a archive and later a development intern managing a direct mail fundraising campaign and tracking donor information. Junior Year of College Interned at the Eco-Learning Center, a biodynamic farm, and received training in sustainable farming strategies. Volunteer in Uganda over winter break to teach computer literacy classes.


Seventh Grade Joined the Mayors Youth Advisory Council for the City of Lansing, spending the next four years advocating for youth voice on boards and councils in the school and city Eleventh Grade Started my first job at the American Cancer Society doing tele-fundraising Sophomore Year of College Studied abroad in Bodh Gaya, India as part of Antioch Buddhist Studies in India, a rigorous academic program culminating in my completion of an ethnographic field study on the changing status of female monastics in Thailand. Senior Year of College My reflection on my work with a restorative justice art program in El Salvador is published in Diversity Education’s “Academy Speaks: Current Affairs and Issues in Academe”

in Profile Hometown: Lansing, Michigan Favorite Character in Fiction: Don Quixote Favorite Workshop to Present: “One Hour Websites,” or really any intro to Wordpress workshop. I love watching people who wouldn’t consider themselves tech-saavy realize that they have the power to be amateur web designers. Favorite Quote: “Language can be a bridge between islands of innovation” - Ashley Finley Four Word Resume: Nonprofit Swiss Army Knife Theme Song: Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves Favorite Place on the Web: Google Images, I underestimated it until I was abroad in India. I would sit in a computer lab for hours with kids who were excited to see Las Vegas, ocelots and the bottom of the ocean for the first time. Google Images gives us a way to see the world and that’s powerful. Greatest Unfinished Project: A chronicle of Stegman family adventures. Favorite Animal: Ocelot
