How have you seen nonprofits play a role/show up in the community?

Before and after the pandemic, nonprofits have played a crucial role in supporting underserved individuals in our communities. They focus on empowering youth through initiatives like education, financial literacy, and healthcare. These efforts meet immediate needs and provide tools and knowledge that empower beneficiaries to achieve long-term self-sufficiency for themselves and their families.

What are you most looking forward to in this new role?

I am eager to deepen my understanding of donor engagement and nonprofit operations in this new role. I aim to leverage my management and leadership skills to make a meaningful impact in the community. I am particularly excited about learning from and collaborating with the experienced team, valuing their insights as we work together to achieve impactful outcomes.

What is your favorite nonprofit cause or focus area?

My favorite nonprofit cause is education equity and the right to education. Having experienced the transformative power of education firsthand as a teacher, I am passionate about initiatives that address disparities in educational opportunities and outcomes. I am particularly interested in initiatives that address disparities in educational opportunity and outcomes. Education equity is also such a broad interest area that anything affecting a learner’s access to quality education is a sub-focus or interest area for me.

I am also partial to causes that build and develop community resilience. During the pandemic, I witnessed firsthand how fragile communities were and how important it was for community members to have sustainable incomes and support for their families. As such, nonprofits that provide economic and financial empowerment are also very dear to me.

When you’re not connecting with donors and nonprofits, what do you like to do for fun?

Beyond my professional endeavors, I find joy in exploring diverse cultures, trying new cuisines, and spending quality time with loved ones. Additionally, baking has become a newfound passion of mine. I find it both therapeutic and creatively fulfilling. It allows me to experiment with different recipes and techniques, bringing a sense of joy to my leisure time.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

A lesser-known fact about me is my love for spreading warmth through hugs. I believe in the power of positive energy and strive to uplift others whenever possible. On a lighter note, I am genuinely fond of spicy food and enjoy indulging in it more than what might be considered usual.
