Join Kim Heitzenrater and Sewanee Career Readiness for #LifeAfterSewanee LIVE on Thursday at 10 a.m. (central) on Instagram Live. Each week, graduates from a diverse range of fields and levels of experience share insight into their careers, key decisions or actions that made a difference, how their time at Sewanee developed career-readiness, and advice for those launching their careers.

As a student, he interned with SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW and Southerners on New Ground; he also conducted research in the Dominican Republic as a Biehl Fellow and studied abroad in Argentina. Armonté participated in the Ecuador Outreach Trip, Perpetual Motion, the Community Engagement House, and the Aux Board at the Wick. 

Following graduation, he conducted research at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a Public Health Fellow before beginning work at Human Rights Campaign.
