Larissa Hotra

Larissa Hotra (Survivor Corps in El Salvador): Larissa graduated from the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources in 2004. She worked at the nonprofit SafeHouse in Ann Arbor, Michigan as a legal advocate and as an environmental science educator to high school students. She then served as the Midwest campaign coordinator for Global Impact, a nonprofit that raises money for international humanitarian organizations. By night, she worked as the Political Affairs Editor for a Ukrainian Internet Newsletter, e-POSHTA. Throughout her time in Chicago she dabbled in everything that the city had to offer: producing a story for Chicago Public Radio on the Ukrainian diaspora; organizing and working with the Ukrainian diaspora through PLAST – a Ukrainian youth scouting; attending free cultural and musical events; practicing her Spanish language skills in Latino immigrant neighborhoods; and trying to play soccer on every piece of green space in the city. At the time of her fellowship, Larissa was in the first year of a Master’s program at George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs.



Because Life is Too Short Not to Laugh

17 Jun

Soon I will be posting videos and pictures of the Amputee Futbol game I went to on Sunday. It was a training/pratice that would inspire even the most decidedly uninspired.

But for now, an unrelated video for the readers. I just can’t resist. The turtle is my favorite; what’s yours?

    That was quite disturbing, in a good way.

    Okay, I have to say my favs are the dog at the beginning, the girl fish singing like Cher, and then the chick who sings “YO SOY REBELDE!”

    Hilarious.
