I started working for Everyday Impact only a couple days after my undergrad commencement, and I hit the ground running. I knew that I had a lot to learn - what better way to learn than diving headfirst into the work? I am grateful to have worked alongside such amazing people in creating positive social change. Working with Team EIC has given me the opportunity to connect on a deeper level with the community in which I grew up. I have grown a lot during my time with the team, and I know that this is not the last time that our paths will cross.
Moving forward, I'll be spending time connecting and collaborating with folks in community, especially the youth. Through my work with Sacramento BHC's Youth Engagement Action Team, I met some of the most brilliant and talented youth in Sacramento. Working alongside these young leaders reminded me of everything I enjoyed about working with youth, and I am pursuing further opportunities to continue doing so.
I have gained a wide range of experience in different aspects of community work through my time with Team EIC, and I will be using this experience to continue building upon the impact I have on my community. I wish for nothing but the best and continued success for Everyday Impact.
