Though Allegra Marra (Class of 2014) is only a sophomore, she has already made her mark on Clark University. She is extremely passionate about advocating for solutions to both global and local problems. As a Making a Difference (MAD) Scholar, Allegra volunteers at Big Brothers Big Sisters and coordinated Just Do It Day 2012 where over 150 Clarkies volunteered in the Worcester community. She is also the treasurer of ONE Campus, which works to end extreme poverty and preventable disease in Africa. Though the topics can be difficult, Allegra still inspires and motivates others to join this extremely important movement. Whether she is lobbying on Capitol Hill or tabling in the UC, she always embodies the best qualities of an advocate and a leader.
