10 Things You Don’t Know About Me : Ebony Johannessenebony-collage

One of our favorite people stopped by for a chat!  Former track star and current PROP case manager intern Ebony Johannessen shared 10 fun facts about herself exclusively with PROP Weekly.

  1. I like to read, go to paint and wine classes, and see movies! I count Shutter Island as one of my all-time favorites!
  2. The best part of interning at PROP is definitely the staff & volunteers. PROP is such an amazing and fun group of people I get to work with.
  3. I own a 5ft boa constrictor named Shaggy
  4. My sophomore year in college I traveled abroad – to Italy and Greece; fulfilling a lifelong dream.
  5. My overall favorite class throughout college was an environmental justice course. It really made me evaluate my everyday life and how much of an impact we each have on the environment.
  6. Macaroni & Cheese….any time of day!
  7. I’m a huge Walking Dead fan. I got my family into it. We now set aside Sunday nights and have intense discussions afterwards.
  8. Social work is a challenging yet rewarding career. Each day is different from the last.  At this point, I want to do it all
  9. If I could work on a major issue in the world it would focus around social injustices – specifically mental health and affordable housing.
  10. I love how PROP brings members together to advocate and support each other.
