My name is Tricia Kiefer and I am the new Program Assistant at East Somerville Main Streets. I am a sophomore at Northeastern University majoring in Cultural Anthropology and I have a Literature minor. I am excited to be working here for the next six months! I really love the diversity in Somerville and I think it will be great to get to know the community better. Right now I am currently on co-op, which is a program offered at Northeastern that makes it possible for students to gain work experience before graduation. At NEU I am also involved with the Orchestra, Invisible Children and a poverty-alleviation campaign called Hope In Action.
