THE STORY:

Hi all! It's my first birthday on the west coast! I'm so excited to dedicate this year's birthday campaign to an amazing organization called Alternatives in Action, where I serve as a Board member. Alternatives in Action's (AIA) mission is to empower Bay Area youth to realize their leadership potential. Each year AIA prepares over 1,300 youth for success in college, career, and community in Oakland. 90% are students of color with diverse economic and English language learner backgrounds and 92% of our youth are the first in their family to go on to college! In particular, I'm very passionate about helping students with real life career preparedness and explorations programs like working with tech companies to provide internships and preparing students with career readiness skills. Help me raise $2,500 to provide over 400 high school students with the opportunity to participate in our career exploration program, including resume writing workshops. One experience could change the trajectory of a student's life! Thanks for your amazing support, near and far! With gratitude, Maria
