The Common Good

Hannah Lythe

Former Policy and Outreach Assistant Intern at Sojourners

So I find myself in Washington D.C., not too far from my Northeastern roots. Originally from Great Britain, with a few other pit stops along the way including the small country of Belgium, my family firmly planted their feet in the lush earth of New Jersey almost fourteen years ago.

In May 2009, I graduated from Boston College with a degree in English and Theology. These four years (well okay five) were some of my most spiritually formative. I took a leave of absence after my sophomore year and lived in South Africa for twelve months, working for a government sponsored Children’s home for the HIV infected. Actualizing my faith became a reality. BC, being a Jesuit school, invoked justice into my faith and prompted me to participate in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps post graduation. I served the past year in New York City at a supportive housing unit in lower Manhattan. JVC was a determining year and incited my entry into Sojourners.

I love to read, write and take great pleasure in my food. I confess: I am a foodie. I enjoy running and playing the beautiful game (soccer, football, futbol). My favorite season is Fall, well Spring. A combination: Sprall. My favorite color is purple and I have an affinity for dinosaurs.

I feel blessed to be a part of the community here at Sojourners and look forward to participating further in their mission toward living our faith in action.
