I have the privlilge of being one of 12 Fellows in the Coro Fellowship Program in Public Affairs, in Pittsburgh. The Coro Fellowship focuses on preparing Pittsburgh's young professionals with the tools necessary to lead and make an impact in the political, educational, and foundational fields, to name just a few.
As such, in these last 6 months, I have been exposed to a wide range of individuals and organizations, from the public and private sectors. In my experiences, I have worked with the hard-working individuals in Pittsburgh's public sector who strive everyday towards making a positive change. This Fellowship has motivated me to follow a career path in the field of immigration and work with the international groups, within the public sector.
So why am I telling you all this? Good question! The Cohort of 12 Coro Fellows are embarking on our next adventure to Washington D.C. We have been tasked with raising $9,984 for our trip. But this isn't any normal D.C. trip. It's Coro's National Affairs Week. The aim of National Affairs Week is to delve into some of the most important issues our nation is addressing at this time. In particular, our focus is on Economic Development, Education, and Healthcare. Our aim is to broaden our knowledge on things related to these topics and we need your help to get us there! While I am in D.C., I will be focusing on Education and with the Cohort will be conducting over 50 interviews throughout our nation's capital.
It would be mean so much to me to have your support in getting me to D.C.! I cannot see a better way to invest in my future and further my career development than to help me get to there. Any donation is greatly appreciated and no donation is too small. I sincerely hope you can be part of this unique and life-changing experience in my continuing professional development.
And so, as Ben Franklin almost famous said: "A penny invested in our leaders, is a penny earned for our futures".
P.S. Just so you know, any funds donated to me above the $550 will support all the fellows in our trip. Any funds donated to the fellows above $10,000 will go to support next year's group of Fellows in Public Affairs. Thanks for your support!
