Organizing for america (OFA)
A issues advocacy group originally created by President Barack Obama, OFA has become a leading force for change across a wide range of issues. Nick first worked with OFA during the 2007 presidential race, and is now an active member of his local OFA chapter in California, focusing especially on climate issues and Congressional races.
Madagascar semester abroad
Nick spent a semester away from Tufts University to live in Madagascar through SIT, the School for International Training. For almost 4 months, he studied ecology and conservation across the diverse and threatened ecosystems of Madagascar. Living in rural villages and with local families, most of Nick's semester was spent out in the field among the endemic flora and fauna. His final project focused on the prevalence of bycatch among the island's shrimp fishing industry.
