Stories of Key Peace & Justice Work

Josie was born in Maryland. While growing up, many parts of the society made her wonder if the way our society functions is fair? To understand many of the questions she had, she studied Interfaith and Spanish at Elizabethtown College with a minor in International Relations.

She is currently pursuing a master’s at the University of Maryland in International Education Policy and hopes to pursue a master’s in TESOL in the future. She studies how society, policy works and that's what interests her to help lift the voices of marginalized individuals in a society in which their voices get lost. She wants the society to reach a point where everyone can live their life in equity and peace. She wants to help to reform the education system and to help advance marginalized students’ learning. Her work with On Earth Peace and International Center for Religion and Diplomacy has helped her to walk towards that goal.

The International Center for Religion and Diplomacy's goal is “To bridge religious considerations with the practice of international politics in support of peacebuilding”. Josie was an intern at ICRD, where she worked with staff and fellow interns to edit and create additional lesson plans for teacher training curriculum designed to enable teachers to engage with students on difficult topics including violent extremism and identity in the classroom. She also compiled daily reports to keep peacebuilders and researchers informed of in-country developments

On Earth Peace

On Earth Peace focuses on supporting people who are working for justice and peace, helping them to develop as leaders in their communities. Josie used to be the Children’s Peace Formation Coordinator Intern for On Earth Peace, where she helped to compose two sets of curriculum for children during her time there: the Agape-Satyagraha curriculum and the Kids as Peacemakers curriculum. Both sets of curriculum were designed to engage children in considering peacebuilding in conjunction with identity and their roles in society.

On Earth Peace's Impact on Josie

“I came to OEP as a college sophomore navigating the higher education system and beginning to understand my calling as an international educator. OEP opened doors for me: the curriculum projects I worked on as an intern have proved instrumental in qualifying for other opportunities, and gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams. ”
