Reilly Diggins

Global Activities Scholars Program

Reilly (she/her/hers) grew up in Sewickley, Pennsylvania and recently graduated from Grove City College where she studied Social Work and Spanish. Her undergraduate field placement was at a shelter for unaccompanied minors, which sparked her passion for working with immigrant and refugee populations in the United States. She also experienced many international travels, including a summer in the Dominican Republic, a semester in Spain, and smaller trips to Uganda and around Europe. These opportunities gave Reilly an appreciation for cultural differences and a greater understanding of showing cultural humility in cross-cultural interactions. In her free time, Reilly enjoys hiking, spending time with family, and investing in her local church. Reilly joined the Global Activities Scholars Program to further develop her skills working with international populations and to expand her competency in implementing effective and inclusive community change, both locally and worldwide.

Over the summer, Reilly is excited to be working in Baltimore with Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Service (LIRS). She will be working with unaccompanied refugee minors in their therapeutic foster care program.
