THE STORY:

Friends, Family and Colleagues,

I am running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon this October and am asking for your support as I raise funds for America Needs You. 

ANY is a comprehensive 2-year program for high achieving, first-generation university students, focusing on professional development. I joined the New York chapter as a Mentor Coach in Summer 2013, and have been working with my unbelievable fellow, Anika, (pictured with me below!) since that point. 

For anyone who has had the pleasure of attending an America Needs You workshop, the environment is truly dynamic. The organization has outstanding facilitators that lead valuable and entertaining seminars to teach fellows (and mentors!) how to find careers they are interested in, strategically apply and interview for internship positions, and how to succeed on the job.

Fellows have made an impact at orgnaizations like Teach for America, Goldman Sachs, and Google. Fellows also recieve grants on a regular basis to help cover professional development costs- from printing resumes to dry cleaning, these grants make a meaningful impact and help ensure they have the financial backing they need to succeed.

I am so excited to help champion the orgnaization's Chicago expansion. I love this city, and I can't wait to meet the team of ANY staff, fellows, and mentor coaches that will undoubtedly make it a success in the "second city". Your generous support will help provide:

-Grants for fellows pursuing unpaid internships

-Lunches, printouts, and breakfasts at workshops

-Professional development grants for fellows 

-Outstanding staff and facilitators 

Thank you so much!
