A happy traveler since briefly living in France at age 4, Indy intern Kelsey Abkin visited State Street to cover a vigil for the dead in Gaza and Israel, here speaking with Imam Yama Niazi. The UC Berkeley sophomore recalled getting caught up in community issues after walking through Sproul Plaza and signing every clipboard handed to her. “The consciousness in the two towns is very similar,” she’s found after working in organic gardens and with students in Oakland and writing about bees and the Afghan Dental Relief Project for us. Her favorite college course so far? “The Power of Language.”
