Alexandra Vroom ’19

Alexandra Vroom ’19 has joined the more
than 198 Hope alumni who have served abroad in
the Peace Corps since 1961, including six others
currently. Having graduated earlier this year with a
nursing major, she is spending the next two years
in Zambia, where she is a maternal and child health
promoter volunteer. “While reading an article about
social justice in the context of public health for
my community health practicum, I encountered
an iridescent intersection between the content of
the article, my personal experiences as a nursing
student, and the perspectives and knowledge gained
during my collegiate courses,” she explained in the
announcement shared by the Peace Corps. “I had the
concrete thought, ‘This, social justice in healthcare, is
something I want to pursue for the rest of my life.’”
