My name is Maggie Collins and I am very excited to serve as a YAV in New York City next year. I graduated in May from the University of Richmond where I majored in French and Leadership Studies. I am originally from Winston-Salem, NC. I served as a Summer Fellow for Public Witness for PC(USA) in 2021 and was really moved by the breadth of work done by the Church. I find the compassion and the motivation of PC(USA) to work towards a better world very inspiring and am excited to take on a bigger role in this work. I hope this year allows me to connect with other who share the same passion as well as allowing me to connect deeper with myself and my faith.
