June 4, 2012 -- Stephanie Pagan ’14 begins her journey to become an ambassador for global change this summer when Oxfam America flies her to Boston to brainstorm with other top students from around the country new ways to overcome poverty, hunger and injustice.

Pagan will bring her new awareness from Oxfam's CHANGE program back to the Mount this fall, where she will work with MSMC students to inspire creative thinking on some of the world's most entrenched social problems. She is one of 50 college students nationwide who will be attending training in July. "I'm honored to have been selected," said Pagan, a sociology major with an emphasis on human rights & global studies, as well as medical sociology. Leadership is a natural for Pagan, who is vice president of the senate for the Chalon Campus ASB, and student enrichment coordinator for Student Programming & Commuter Services.

Oxfam America is an international relief and development organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger and injustice. The organization is one of 17 affiliates in the international confederation Oxfam.
