Originally from Linwood, New Jersey, Nick recently graduated from Boston College with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies, a minor in Hispanic Studies, and was honored with a William J. Kenealy, S.J. Award for his social justice and academic work. Nick has developed his passion for social justice, religion, and policymaking through travel opportunities throughout the world, including Bolivia, Peru, Egypt, Japan, and Spain, among others. Through an internship with the U.S. Jesuit Conference Secretariat for Social and International Ministries in Washington, D.C., Nick has become increasingly interested in working to effect political change at the federal level. Nick's volunteer work through campus ministry on alternative spring break trips to Appalachia, and with Somali refugees and students in the juvenile justice system has helped cultivate his commitment to ensuring everyone has access to a great education. Nick is very excited to join the team at NETWORK and work as Lobby Associate to help effect positive change.
