Hannah Coley grew up in Chicago, Illinios but calls the small northeast Ohio town of Cuyahoga Falls home. She graduated from Loyola University Chicago in May of 2016, majoring in Philosophy with a concentration in Social Justice and minoring in Peace Studies and Dance. She has entered into her second year of service in Punta Gorda, Belize as the Youth Ministry Coordinator for St. Peter Claver Jesuit Parish. She finds freedom and fulfillment in spending quality time with those she loves and with her community (both JV and local) by playing music and singing, cooking, talking, and hiking/kayaking/exploring/experiencing God outdoors. She has been deeply moved by the women in her local and JV communities and in extension of the Women’s Marches that took place all over the world last March, her and her two female community mates took part in La Ruta Maya Canoe Race (175 mile race across the country of Belize). She hopes other young women in her communities might feel encouraged and empowered to find creative ways of experiencing God, community and their inner strength.
