Hometown: Rochester, IL
Future Plans: Write for a non-profit agency
Erica Peak-Nordstrom helped to create a community garden at the University of Illinois Springfield after coming up with the idea in an Introduction to Sustainability class. The garden will provide locally grown food to the campus community. Peak-Nordstrom led the effort to fundraise for the project and gain campus support. The English major also works on campus as a Peer Writing Tutor in The Learning Hub. After graduation, Peak-Nordstrom plans on working for a local social-justice-oriented non-profit in some type of writing role, whether that be as a grant writer, copywriter, or any other role.
