Sophie Ordway

Global Activities Scholars Program

Sophie Ordway studied English and Women’s Studies at Marist College in Poughkeepsie. She took advantage of Marist’s abroad programs to spend one year in Italy and a semester in New Zealand. After college, Sophie lived in Boston for a few years and then spent two school years working in southern Spain as an Assistant English Teacher. In 2017 Sophie served a year in AmeriCorps in her hometown of Grand Rapids, MI. She was hired into the agency she served with and continued working in their re-entry program, providing employment services to folks recently released from prison. Sophie is looking forward to traveling again through the Global Activities Scholar Program and is interested in learning about criminal justice, education and gender from another culture’s perspective. Sophie would like to use her MSW degree to work towards criminal justice reform but is also very open to a career in international social work.
