It's Been a While...
It's been a while since I've written on here. I've decided to start up again and start with a little reflection and self-affirmation.
I live my life trying to achieve one simple goal--to leave the world a better place than it was when I got here. Whether it be working with the wonderful team we have at Neighborhood Trust to help struggling Americans reach their financial goals, or working with La Unidad Latina and Unity Prep to encourage academic success in low-income and minority communities, I have a commitment to make a difference in the lives of others.
I firmly believe that the right combination of passion and expertise can change the world. I have the passion and am building a career to build the expertise. I'm most interested in operational efficiency. Working in small organizations, I've seen the wheel reinvented more times than I can count. I often think to myself, "How do we put in systems to keep institutional memory and work more efficiently in the future? How can we improve and speed up this process?"
I hope that my quest for better pathways will result in the right expertise to couple with my passion. When that day comes, I'll be ready to change the world.
