As the school year comes to an end, 4-H always needs all hands on deck for summer events and programming. This summer, we are lucky to be working with some new members in order to make our summer plans possible and efficient.
The new members are: Alex Horgan, Harrison Peck, Hannah Rosen, Dayelline Estrada-Britton, and Zoe Challenger. They have each included a short introduction of themselves down below. Let’s welcome them as they begin their new position at 4-H this summer!
Alex Horgan (he/him): Interim 4-H Educator
Hi everyone! My name is Alex (he/him) and I am currently a Graduate Naturalist at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Finland, MN working towards my master's certificate in Environmental Education and Sustainability. In previous summers, I have worked at YMCA Camp du Nord as program staff and as one of their Leadership Development Coordinators. I am also a part of the Gustavus class of '22 where I majored in elementary education. I can't wait to meet all of you and get summer started!
Harrison Peck (he/him): Program Coordinator
My name is Harrison, I use he/him pronouns, and I'm starting grad school in the fall with a focus on museum management! This is my first year with 4-H, and I will be running a few of the camps this summer and helping out with some other events and activities as well. I have a background in history, circus, and naturalist work. I look forward to meeting everyone!
Hannah Rosen (she/her): 4-H Evaluation Intern
Hannah's previous experiences focus on business and healthcare. Previously, Hannah has worked as an EDT/HUC in the Emergency Department at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC), and in systems operations for Regions Hospital and MHealth Fairview. She has a BA from Metropolitan University in Social Science. She is currently pursuing dual MPH and MPP degrees at the University of Minnesota. Hannah enjoys traveling, research and reading, music, volunteering, and nature.
Dayelline Estrada-Britton (she/her): 4-H Summer Intern
My name is Dayelline Estrada-Britton and I am a rising senior at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. My major is Cognitive Science on the pre-med track with a minor in French. I was born and raised in Nicaragua, but my parents and I moved to New Jersey in 2011. Some of my hobbies include rowing for the crew team at Case Western, listening to music, road biking, and singing. Throughout high school, I was part of the Rutgers 4 H Science Pathways program, and now, I am excited to help as an intern here.
Zoe Challenger (they/them): 4-H Summer Intern
I am a current student at the University of Minnesota pursuing a bachelor's degree of individualized studies focusing on journalism, photography, and graphic design. I am a passionate learner of agriculture and food studies in my free time. I grew up with a focused education in environmental studies and the arts and both have stuck with me through the test of time. I am dedicated to the work needed to build communities and I am eager to stretch my means of work by sharing and learning work with other people. While none of us "dream" of labor, labor is an act of love and will always need to be present. In my free time, I enjoy music, camping, and being outside!
