Becca’s Bio

Becca Bass graduated from Haverford College in May 2012 where she majored in Psychology and minored in Educational Studies. Her senior thesis was titled “Transformational Processing of Negative Events Through Writing: An Experimental Manipulation.” Becca has dedicated much of her intellectual energy, time, and commitment to issues of education and education reform.  She was a founding member of Buffalo ReformEd, an education reform policy nonprofit in her hometown of Buffalo, New York. She was also the founding president of the Haverford chapter of Students for Education Reform. Becca lived in community with the same group during her four years at Haverford, which taught her a lot about the challenges and joys of community life. Introduced to Quakerism while at Haverford, she appreciates so much about the Quaker tradition and looks forwards to learning and experiencing more this year with QVS. Becca will be serving at Atlanta Habitat for Humanity, where she will work as a family services assistant, working with families to access the resources of Habitat for Humanity and engaging in community outreach and education programs.
