[July 29, 2019] As a student at North Providence High School, I wasn't quite sure what topic I wanted to do for my senior project. The main goal from this project is to gain a lot of information on a topic you find interesting, especially because the entire assignment takes place over the course of nine months. For my senior project, I wanted to research domestic violence. In addition to the research I have been asked to do, I had also been required to meet with a mentor, or an expert within the field of my selection. I asked Kathy McCormick, who is member of the SOAR (Sisters Overcoming Abuse Relationships) taskforce with the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence, to be my mentor.
