May Zen is a RISE AmeriCorps member serving at EMBARC Des Moines.
May moved to Des Moines from Marshalltown, where she was a Bilingual Tutor/Interpreter at Marshalltown High School. The reason she wants to serve immigrants and refugees is because there are so many people who need help with translation and learning English. During her RISE AmeriCorps term, May hopes to support learning in her community.
In her free time, May loves to exercise, cook and watch movies.
