These Broncos found what they were looking for!
Hi, my name is Aliyah Morphis, and I am a graduate of the c/o 2017. As a biracial, low-income, first generation college student, I am ecstatic to have recently completed the biggest milestone of my life! Now, I have my sights set on my next play. Thus, I am excited to announce that I will be participating in a post-grad social justice trip before assuming my full time job in the Business Leadership Program at LinkedIn! After attending a Jesuit university for four years, I have developed a burning passion for social justice. Through my academics, involvement in cultural clubs, internships, and immersion trips, I have gained exposure to a variety of systemic injustices that must be faced. Advocating for human rights and access to fundamental resources like health care, education and employment is now intertwined with my personal mission in life. Saint Ignatius of Loyola once said, "Go forth and set the world on fire." I intend to do just that. In participating in this internship abroad, I hope to gain exposure to a new culture by living in solidarity with community members, complete my personal goal of becoming fluent in Spanish (I've been working at it for a while) enabling me to work with more diverse populations at home, and most importantly --learn. I hope to learn more about the realities others face, while identifying common grounds. I believe learning about one another is the first step in building harmonious bridges of the future.

There continues to be a steady and growing Switchboard interest from SCU students, parents and alumni. As SCU's Switchboard grows, so, too, does the collective response to its multiple and varied posts (including my own!). Switchboard is a great idea and an outstanding networking tool for our ever-growing SCU community!
