Volunteer of the Month

February 2011 - Volunteer of the Month

Lani:

I have been volunteering for RightRides for 15 months now and even though I’m honored to accept Volunteer of the Month, I have to thank the organizers and the people I’ve driven with for making it so easy and fun.

I worked as a safety walker in college and was happy to find such a well-established program in NYC when I moved here.  I volunteer for RightRides because I strongly believe in their mission.  I believe that women and all people deserve a sense of safety and hope that our presence, as RightRides volunteers, will help to make that a reality for the groups we serve.

When I’m not volunteering for RightRides, you might find me in  the lab (since I’m a graduate student in molecular biology), coffee shop, live music show, gallery opening, or helping my sister with a crazy art project.  I also enjoy running and biking around Brooklyn, when there isn’t 3 feet of snow on the ground.
