I’m currently working as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and living at the Seattle Catholic Worker
, which I helped found following my QuEST year. SCW is a radical Christian intentional community based in Skyway, and we run an all-volunteer drop-in center in the Rainier Valley. We also publish a quarterly newspaper, The Inbreaking, participate in a weekly peace vigil at the Federal Building, and hold a bi-monthly creative sharing event. My QuEST year was my first (wonderful!) taste of social justice-oriented intentional community, which led directly to the life I’m living now. I couldn’t be more thankful for the experience that QuEST afforded me, and for the fantastic people that I had the privilege to live with for a year.
