Kierstin Barbieri is a senior at Penn State and a co-leader of the Advanced Dialogue Assistant team with fellow senior Jonathan Karley. She is a Psychology B.S. major with a minor in Sociology. Kierstin took Sociology 119 with Sam Richards in the spring of her freshman year and was a teaching assistant for the class the following fall. She was accepted onto the Advanced Facilitation Team the spring of her sophomore year and has been with us ever since! She helps run a team of nine beautiful people, writes the weekly newsletter, and assists with dialogue operations and planning. She is drawn to this work because she recognizes the beauty in all peoples’ differences and loves to exist wherever cultures collide. World in Conversation has given her a place to pursue these passions!
