Ayroba Dutton has a degree in Political Science and won an award for distinguished service to Morgan State University’s Office of Student Judicial Affairs. Ayroba also loves the arts. She performed with her high school marching band in Shanghai, and takes every opportunity she can to act and dance. A recent college graduate, Ayroba saw Volunteer Maryland as a good opportunity, and reports that some of her best memories are of volunteering. Ayroba has volunteered with the Families Foremost Center, and has worked with her faith community to assemble Easter baskets for pediatric cancer patients at Johns Hopkins. Serving as Volunteer Maryland Coordinator with The Menare Foundation, which educates the public about plantation life and the Underground Railroad, is a natural next step for Ayroba, who is very interested in American history.
During her service year, Ayroba is hoping to gain leadership skills, including organizing materials and helping people find appropriate opportunities to serve. Ayroba is considering graduate studies in history, sociology, educational leadership or public administration. Her career goals include journalism, government service, education and running for elected office.
