Hello! I'm Min Jin and I am a second year Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics (MIMG) major. Although I am a STEM major, I am passionate about social justice issues and try to educate myself to the best of my abilities. When I'm not scrambling to finish an assignment I love watching cheesy rom-coms and fantasizing about traveling to different countries. Last year, I was part of the environmental justice site. With all of the negative headlines this past year, the site was a fresh breath of air. As cliche as it sounds, AB helped me to focus on the positive impact humanity can have. I hope that I can help spread this positivity at the healthcare accessibility site with you too!

I am a third year Environmental Science major with a minor in Conservation Biology. My first year, I prepared to become a participant on a site to Arizona to learn more about conservation efforts here in the US. Last year, I was the Finance Director on board and got to see Alternative Breaks from behind the scenes. I am so excited to be a Site Leader this year and hope to plan an amazing trip! I've met so many like-minded and passionate individuals through AB and cannot wait to see what this year brings. In my free time, I enjoy going to the beach, drinking coffee with friends, and spending time with my lovely cat.

Hello! My name is Chloe and I am a second-year pre-Public Affairs major hoping to also double major in Gender Studies! Some activities that I love doing include bullet journaling, hanging out with my doggo named Goose, and watching Marvel movies with my family. Last year, I was a participant on the Mass Incarceration site. Despite the site being completely virtual, I still had a blast and learned so much about the criminal "justice" system in the United States. In regards to what I have gained from AB, I have learned so much about how to be an effective activist and have developed so many amazing friendships along the way. I can't wait to get to know you all this year!

I'm going to be a senior this year and am majoring in Molecular, Cell, & Developmental Biology and minoring in Art History! I really enjoy playing tennis (or doing any outdoor activity), reading, and doing arts & crafts. I've been a member of AB for the past two years and went on the totally amazing climate crisis trip last year! AB has been a great space for community and growth and being a member has enabled me to learn a lot about myself and start to become an active citizen for change.

Hey I’m Z! I’m a 4th year Psychobiology major with a minor in Food Studies. I like to sing, dance, and dabble with the kazoo. In 2020, I was a member of the Athens, Ohio site. Since then, AB has helped me become more intentional and mindful about my service back to the community :)

Hi! I am a fourth year Mechanical Engineering major from suburban Fullerton, CA. My first trip with AB was as a participant on a virtual site exploring climate change in Alaska. Despite the trip being virtual rather than in person, I still learned invaluable lessions about the societal and social justice impacts from the communities we worked with that shaped my world view. I'm excited to be leading a site this year with my co, Zeph, exploring Natural Disasters in Chico, CA. Outsite of AB, I enjoy taking walks, spending time in nature, playing board games and tabletop games, and spending time doing nothing.

I'm a second year MCDB major and I was previously a member of the Orange Is The New Black: The Modern Day Fight for Civil Rights Against Mass Incarceration site where we explored systematic racism and the prison industrial complex. Even in a virtual environment, my AB experience thus far has been truly eye-opening and insightful. The community that Alternative Breaks provides, whether it be the members, officers, or community partners, is my favorite part. Outside of AB, I spend a lot of time bingeing shows or reading!

Site Leader

Hi everyone! I'm Niki and I am an incoming sophomore hoping to major in Human Biology and Society. In my free time I enjoy traveling, jamming out to my sad spotify playlists, and indulging in anything my sweet tooth is craving. During my freshman year, I was on the Mass Incarceration site as a site member. This experience was extremely fulfilling and eyeopening despite it being virtual. It gave me the opportunity to learn how to reflect and to effectively take action against persistent social justice issues. I met an incredible group of people that I was able to grow with throughout the course of my freshman year, and who I am able to stay connected with in and out of AB!
