AmeriCorps VISTA: Katherine Velazquez
We are thrilled to welcome Katherine Velazquez to our United Way of Lake County team. Katherine will be joining us as our AmeriCorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) member working on our Success By 6 team. Join us in welcoming Katherine!
- What is your name? Katherine Velazquez
- Where did you go to school? I went to Central Connecticut State University
- What was your major? I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelors in Sociology
- Where are you from? Southington, Connecticut
- What’s your favorite restaurant/food? Chipotle is one of my favorite restaurants and my favorite food is a tie between Mexican cuisine and Japanese cuisine
- What is something interesting that no one knows about you? I have a HUGE fear of ketchup
- If you had to sing one karaoke song for the rest of your life, what would it be? That’s such a hard question but I would have to say Love Yourself by Justin Bieber
- What is the best movie in the world and why do you think so? Lilo and Stitch. Hands down, this movie is so much about family with no love story. “Lilo” actually translates to “lost” so it is “Stitch’s” job to “stitch” them back together. I can watch that movie a million times.
