Profiles in Giving

Volunteer Spotlight: London Moore, A09

About her

London Moore, A09, has taken to heart the advice a professor once gave her: we are all part of the same world, so we need to make sure we all play a part in it. After graduating last spring with a degree in political science, Moore joined Teach for America, and is now teaching an elementary class in Baton Rouge, La., as part of the Teach for America program. Her Tufts classmates recently elected her to serve a five-year term on the Tufts Alumni Council.

Why she stays active

"I'm big on the idea that it's easy to stay in touch with the campus wherever you are. Tufts means a lot to students for their four years, and there's no reason that has to stop even though we are in a different period of our lives. My class was very active and I want to make sure everyone has a chance to continue being active whether that be something on weekends or a service trip. I'm excited to be the liaison that helps drive alumni together."

What Tufts means to her

"Tufts gave me so much, so the thought of not giving back is absurd! I had so many opportunities to try new activities that I never thought I would do. My junior year I decided to go to Ghana, and it was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had!"
