2018 Counselors

Thursday, March 1 2018

Posted By: Michelle Hennessy 

Introducing our 2018 Counselors... We look forward to working with them this summer.


Hello all! My name is Clare Hennessy and I am the American female counselor for Ulster Project 2018. I participated as a teen in the Ulster Project in 2012. Now I am in my third year at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, MO, studying Communication Sciences and Disorders on the track to becoming a Speech Language Pathologist. I work at an art museum on my schoolís campus and I spend my free time in landlocked St. Louis trying to find bodies of water where I can swim and drawing portraits of the people I love. I am really looking forward to working with the Ulster Project again as it was an extremely formative part of my teenage years. I am excited to build relationships with this yearís teens and their families, as well as the counselors and all the board members and other volunteers who make the Ulster Project possible year after year. I am incredibly honored to have been selected for this position and canít wait to meet everyone!

My name is Sam Moore, I am a junior at the University of North Texas. I am studying History and seeking a teaching certification alongside my degree. I want to use that degree to become a high school or middle school history teacher. I was a participant in the Ulster Project back in 2012 and am looking to give back to the project by working as counselor. I am very excited for this opportunity and canít wait for the project to get started.

Northern Irish

Hey folks, my name is Danny Wallace and I am 23 years old. I currently work as a special educational needs assistant in De La Salle College Belfast. I graduated from St. Maryís University College in 2016 with a Liberal Arts degree in Irish. I have worked with young people for over 8 years. Last year I worked as a youth worker on a Programme called Learning Through the Divide which was a cross community group involving young people from West Belfast and East Belfast. I enjoy many sporting activities both as a participant and Spectator. I currently play Semi Professional football in the Irish league for Warrenpoint Town Football Club. I also play Gaelic Football for Michael Davitts. Iím really looking forward to meeting you all and working with you!!

Hey ya'll! My name is Alexandria McClune I am 21 years old and will be 22 when in America.This is my second year as a counselor, last year was my first and I went to Alliance, Ohio. However, this is not my first experience in the project. Back in 2011 I participated as a teen and was very lucky to be selected to go to Arlington Texas, where I had one of the best experiences of my life! I made some of my bestest friends from Ulster Project and absolutely love everything that it stands for. I am still to this day very close with my American family - it's a weird week if we haven't communicated at least once! Texas as a state had such a lasting mark with me that I contemplated the idea of completing College out there. Outside Ulster Project I am a student at the University of Sunderland in England and will graduate this summer with a Ba Hons in Drama. I hope to go on to complete a teaching certificate to be a Primary (Elementary) school teacher. I adore all things Drama, dance and performance related so it is no surprise that I love all things Disney and fully embrace being a princess! I recently got engaged so feel like a real grown up planning a wedding - surely if I can plan UP I can plan a wedding, right? I can't wait to see everyone again and meet all the new faces. UP is the greatest experience in the world and I really encourage all who are involved to fully embrace the month and throw yourself head first into everything!!!
