Ryan Brooks

Social Impact Fellow
by

Ryan Brooks is a freshman at Loyola University Maryland. He graduated from New Hartford High School located in New Hartford, NY. While in high school, he was involved in all parts of student life. He played three sports, cross country in the fall, indoor track in the winter, and baseball in the spring. He played violin in the school orchestra and tenor saxophone in the school band. Ryan  decided to continue his education at Loyola University Maryland with the goal of getting a degree in political science with a specific concentration in constitutional law. He continues to stay involved in college as well, working a job as a caller at Phonathon as well as volunteering at Alumni Memorial Chapel as a lector and at Don Miller House. He is very enthusiastic about being a Social Impact Fellow because he has the goal of becoming a public servant in some level of government. After hearing the harsh rhetoric from many of our public officials of recent years, this country needs people who are going to put an end to hostility and instead unify people of all ages, races, religions, and creeds. He wants to be one of those people who help to bring that change about. Ryan feels that participating in this fellowship will help  to him better understand different ways of life and ultimately help build skills that are necessary to achieve one of his future goals-to bring people together and unify a population which seems to currently be bitterly divided.
