Project Description

Karsen Kennedy, of Fuquay-Varina, NC, recently graduated from Harnett Central High School. At Harnett Central, Karsen was a concertmaster for her school’s orchestra as a violinist and was involved with the Young Political Activist Club and Joyful Sound. Karsen has been independently studying Korean and Thai and is interested in continuing to learn ASL and Spanish.

Her desire to take a Gap Year “spurs from her longing to see people.” During her Gap Year, Karsen hopes to continue to enrich her language education and work with organizations that cater to her passions for animal advocacy, environmental justice, and music. Overall, Karsen is excited to form connections within a new environment and learn from working with new service-oriented organizations.
