How did you get started working with non-profits?
I have always needed to feel that the work I do has meaning and makes a difference in some way. Working in the Nonprofit sector was a no brainer for me and fills my need to feel useful and give back.
I always knew I would work with youth. Coming from an economically disadvantaged background as well as a very dysfunctional family I am still very much in touch with that little girl in me that never felt like she fit anywhere. That made me an avid advocate of children and youth and created in me a passion to contribute in some way to provide opportunities for growth and fulfillment for young people and to help them believe in themselves. I want them to have the support to make their dreams a reality.
