Charmaine Porter, Central NUA Knights VISTA

Born and bred in Providence, Charmaine attended NUA in 2009 and 2010 as a senior at the Met High School. She received her BA in Creative Writing from Rhode Island College in 2014. She spends her free time writing poems, freestyling lyrics, and reading her horoscope. She is a proud Sagittarius sun and rising.

Charmaine began working with high school students when she herself was a junior in high school and ran the anime club after school. As a student at RIC, she worked with students at the Met High School as a Student Ambassador. In 2015, Charmaine served as a VISTA at Tolman High School in Pawtucket.

After spending a year of teaching adults at a tech school, Charmaine realized that working on the growth and development of high school students is her truest path. Always inspired by the great feats accomplished by youth, Charmaine is excited to start her year as the NUA Knights VISTA at Central High School.
