Last summer my life was changed when I went to work with orphans and vulnerable children in the slum of Kibera. Africa’s largest slum is home to over one million people, the largest population being children. The need is huge and immediate. As I worked with two local organizations, I left with a desire to do more. I helped my church to implement a variety of programs to deepen the relationship with these groups and continue to raise funds for their work.

As I am finding myself looking to change careers into the non-profit world, I believe I bring a unique set of skills.

  • As a journalism and communications major with vast experience in public relations and marketing, Ibring with me the ability to express ideas clearly and concisely while pulling in an audience.
  • Working on the ground in Kenya has given me a first-hand understanding of poverty in the third world and tools to combat it including: empowering local leaders, microfinance, education, clean water, food initiatives and more.
  • My public relations and fundraising experience give me the tools for dealing expertly with donors and their needs and concerns.
  • My organizational skills cannot be beat; I have run the day-to-day operations of a school, production company and numerous plays.

I would love to be a part of a company where my work each day contributes to a greater good. I believe I have the dedication, drive and inter-personal skills it would take to thrive in the non-profit sector. 

Thank you for your time and consideration. Feel free to contact me with any further questions.
