Jenna Royce has been a fellow since 2013-2014. She has created several posters for OCAP events – and continues to do so this year. Jenna graduated with honors from Northwest Christian University in 2012 with a double major in English and Communications. During college, Jenna volunteered with Hosea Youth Services, a center for homeless and runaway teenagers. In the summer of 2011, she worked in Cambodia with at-risk children and girls rescued from sex trafficking. These experiences generated her interest in child protection issues and inspired her to pursue a career advocating for at-risk youth.
Christopher Gray was a fellow from 2012-2014. He created posters for OCAP events during his fellowship. Chris graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, majoring in International Studies, and Molecular and Cellular Biology. He then interned for a Chicago-based international adoption attorney, while also working as a diversity educator and a part-time soccer coach. Christopher spent his summers volunteering as a camp counselor for Holt International's adoptee summer camps. He then spent a year in Seoul interning for Holt Children's Services of Korea's post-adoption center. While in Korea, he advocated for adult adoptee rights, and worked with prospective adoptive families, birth mothers, and underprivileged children.
