Hello, my name is Michelle Abban, and I am very excited to be joining the LVCA team as the new Volunteer Engagement Coordinator.
I recently graduated from the University of Virginia in 2020 with a degree in Global Public Health. During my time at UVA, I was a part of an English learners program called VISAS that connected students with the international community at UVA. It was the highlight of my time at UVA as I built connections with people from all over the world. During my time, I learned more about the difficulty of learning a new language and the difference cross-cultural relationships can make. I am so happy to continue to be a part of a community that empowers people to learn English.
When I am not in the office, you can find me cooking Ghanaian food, dancing, and critically analyzing corny TV shows.
