Fatima Elkrimi graduated from Mary Lyon high school in 2016, and is now in her freshman year at UMass. Excited and nervous for her first year of college, she is ready to pursue her long-time passion for physical therapy which she has dreamed of since childhood. Fatima also works at Watertown Health Center as an activities assistant helping senior citizen residents. Fostering close relationships with the residents through playing puzzles and other activities to exercise their memory, Fatima revels in “bringing the joy.”
This idea was certainly present during her time on the 2015 trip to New Orleans when Quest students helped rebuild a woman’s house. After all the work and the traveling, the woman’s sincere appreciation touched Fatima, “It was the first time doing something big like that in my life,” she said. Being a part of the Alumni board has given her the opportunity to continue learning about service and travel and the ability of teams to come together and work as one hand toward a common goal.
