My name is Katrina Erickson and I am an intern at Looking Upwards. I was born in West Hartford, CT, the moved to Shanghai, China for four years, then moved to Jupiter, Florida, and am currently living in Newport, RI studying social work at Salve Regina University. When I graduate, I aspire to help people in need and continue on my path in a career that makes me fulfilled in life. I have a great family who supports me, and two dogs that I saved while in living in China. I love traveling, the beach, music, and spending time with family and friends. I am passionate about helping others and doing what's right for people as both individuals and a community.
