Minnesota Alliance with Youth

Abou Amara Jr.

PROMISE FELLOW OF THE MONTH
November 2009

Abou started his AmeriCorps Promise Fellow program year at Youth Community Connections after graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, where he studied Sociology and Public Policy.

He was a member of the football team, a student senator, and president of the pre-law organization while attending UW-Eau Claire. Over the summer of 2009, he interned for a state legislator in Wisconsin.

Abou was born and raised in Madison, WI, and currently resides in St. Paul, MN. He is self-confessed political junkie – so reading, listening to, or watching anything related to politics is of interest to him.

He also enjoys telling all his Minnesota friends that Wisconsin is way cooler than Minnesota.
