Devils Spark Change is getting ready to launch our second service trip! We are so excited for this team of amazing individuals to come together and serve in the area of domestic violence in Prescott, AZ. Over the coming weeks, look out for more blog posts about the nonprofit we will be working with and what we’ll be doing for them, but in the meantime, take a look at all the wonderful people we will have coming with us! Thanks for keeping up with DSC!
Susie Puga (TRIP LEAD, 2nd DSC Trip!)
I am passionate about building a sustainable society that also advances the mental and emotional well-being of individuals. I think learning about domestic violence awareness and how to act empathetically to those situations is very relevant to what I hope to achieve. Domestic violence is very prevalent but it’s so painful; I don’t think many talk about it. I want to learn how best have those key conversations.
I am a first generation student studying accountancy in the W.P. Carey School of Business. I have done many small things to help people in my community, but when I heard about the trip I felt very compelled to apply as I thought it would be very impactful. I felt as though this trip has the possibility of having a huge impact on not just me, but many others as well.
Madeleine Korn (2nd DSC Trip!)
I am very friendly and hard-working. I love participating in service trips and I had so much fun on the trip to Catalina Island! I chose to participate on this trip because I am interested in learning more about domestic violence and also helping domestic violence victims.
I’m an Interdisciplinary Studies major focusing on Film and History. I strongly believe in the power of art to make change, and hope to exist/create from a place of empathy. This trip seems like an amazing opportunity to grow and give – I’m excited to work with the team!
Hi friends! My name is Arianna Freedom Lew and I’m a Junior at Barrett the Honors College studying Biological Sciences with a Minor in Global Health. My passion for serving others stems from wanting to help people live easier lives and speak for those who have no voice. In addition, I’m passionate about mental health, fitness, traveling, and dogs. I’m excited to attend the MLK trip as I’ve yet to learn more about Domestic Violence and how this looks from a different perspective. This is a crucial and important issue amongst today’s society so I’m looking forward to see how Prescott Valley manages to spread awareness.
Hello! My name is Alyssa Tong and I am a junior studying Biology with a concentration in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior. I have always loved participating in service events and being able to serve others. My goal is to be able to learn skills so that I can help people in every way possible. I’m so excited to be a part of this trip and to be able to grow alongside all of the other people on this trip!

Carly Golding (2nd DSC Trip!)
Empathy and communication skills are the most important skills anyone can have, I believe, and I feel called to serve on this trip to help strengthen these things within my own life, as well as other people’s lives.
Law enforcement has always been a passion of mine, and learning more about domestic violence is one step closer to making the world a safer place.
