*insert princess wave here*
My name is Meredith, and I'm a 23 year old kinda-sorta-recent graduate of Messiah College. I'm just your typical goofy, semi-educated, incredibly ignorant, middle class American kid living in Palestine. I'm spending a year abroad before I return home to continue my education in Public Policy... or maybe I'll do Palestinian advocacy work... or maybe I'll move back overseas and live another adventure. I have a few decisions to make.
I am able to be in Palestine thanks to Mennonite Central Committee's SALT Program, which each year sends 60 Americans and Canadians to work in around 40 different countries! While most people are in Africa, South America, or Asia, I am here in the Middle East along with two other wonderful SALTers.
I'm working for The Shepherd Society, which is the humanitarian branch of Bethlehem Bible College. We serve over 4,000 families in many different ways, including food coupons; medical, utility, and school tuition aid; and family sponsorships. The work of the Shepherd Society is so incredibly transformative, and I am honored to be able to work alongside Palestinians who are passionate about helping their neighbors. If you're interested in more specifics, you can check out the Shepherd Society Website.
