Welcome Program Intern Eve!

Hi everyone! My name is Eve Grill and I am so excited to be the Program Intern this summer! I am a rising junior at the College of William & Mary, majoring in Government and English. I love nature and being surrounded by people who make me want to be a better human. I am a self-proclaimed coffee addict and think laughter is the most beautiful sound in the world. At school, I am involved in my sorority, as well as Griffin School Partnerships (GSP) and Camp Kesem. This past year, I was the Communications and Logistics Coordinator for GSP, and got to engage with schools and communities within the Williamsburg area on a meaningful and enlightening level. I also currently serve on the Coord Board of Camp Kesem, a camp dedicated to supporting children through and beyond a parent’s cancer. I work as a co-development coordinator to find fundraising opportunities in order to make the Kesem magic a reality every summer. Long term, I hope to find meaning in whatever I do, and above all, be happy. I am ecstatic to be a part of the Generation Hope team and be surrounded by people who are driven, compassionate, intelligent, and welcoming! In joining this team, I am certain I will find mentors who will help me along my journey in finding what brings me the greatest sense of meaning and purpose for my future.

Hello everyone,

My name is Tanazia Matthews and I will be serving as one of the Scholar Program Coordinators here at Generation Hope! I am a Washingtonian and love my city. I received my undergraduate degree from Trinity Washington University (Home of the Tigers) in May 2018, where I majored in Human Relations. I am now attending Howard University in pursuit of my Masters of Social Work. I have always been passionate about helping and giving back to pregnant and parenting youth because I was one. As a Generation Hope Alumnae, I am happy to be here to help you all through college and create better lives for yourself and children.

Hi everybody! I’m Chase, and I’ll be serving as one of Generation Hope’s new Scholar Program Coordinators. I completed my undergrad at Occidental College in Los Angeles, then spent a year in northern Florida as an AmeriCorps member. I’m originally from Portland, Maine, but after bouncing around the country for years now, I’m really looking forward to putting down some roots in the District.   I’ve been passionate about social justice, particularly reproductive justice, for the past seven years, and I’m so excited to continue to explore these fields at Generation Hope. Our Scholars are such inspirational young folks, and I can’t wait to do my part to help them achieve their dreams. The Scholars, Sponsors, employees, and supporters of Generation Hope have created such a beautiful community together, and I feel incredibly grateful to be a part of it.
