Alicia Smith serves as our New York Fellow. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree at New York University’s Silver School of Social Work and holds a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from CUNY York College. As a social work major, Alicia is committed to empowering the next generation to become civically engaged. During undergrad, she served as President of the Helping Hands Club, Vice President of the Women’s Society, and Secretary of the Social Work Club. Alicia also organized the first CUNY York College Women’s Leadership Conference. Off-campus, she is involved in her community as a Constituent Liaison for NYS Assemblymember Jaime Williams. As she worked with constituents, state agencies, advocacy organizations, and community groups through Williams' office, Alicia saw an urgent need for more macro-level social workers. As an IGNITE fellow, Alicia hopes to help individuals tap into their hidden potential and become effective change agents. For New York inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
