Amy Dingler is from Fayetteville, GA and traveled to India, France, Italy, Hungary, Madagascar and South Africa for her gap year. Her work ranged from working in a hospice in Kolkata, to teaching English, and science diving to collect data in Madagascar. At Carolina, Amy is a Bonner Leader at the Campus Y where she volunteers with SCALE (Student Coalition for Action in Literacy Education). After college, she would like to take a year to volunteer in India, and she hopes to eventually start her own venture to help direct students to non-profits. Her favorite part of her gap year experience was the opportunity to grow personally and emotionally outside of her home environment.
