Nicole Sellew is a ’21 from Connecticut.  She has participated in MAV since 17F and now serves on the executive board as the associate director of Prevention Education. MAV leaders aspire to create and maintain an atmosphere of self-care and positive reinforcement. In line with that core principle, Nicole celebrates her ability to be a passionate and dedicated individual. She feels inspired by being involved in an organization that has such a strong community of students dedicated to working in the field of sexual violence prevention. Nicole also believes that serving as as MAV executive means ensuring that every member feels comfortable sharing their ideas. After leaving Dartmouth, she hopes that MAV continues to encourage people to have in-depth discussions about gender-based violence and sexual violence on this campus.
