When I graduated from Carnegie Mellon inMay, I knew I was ending a chapter and beginning a new journey as a recent college graduate. While it was difficult leaving the familiar; Carnegie Mellon, friends, and family, I decided to join the PULSE program in Pittsburgh, PA.
PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. They invite recent, college graduates (like myself) to partner with local nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. I got excited about the PULSE program because of my absence from Pittsburgh over the last 7 months. As you may or may not know, I spent the last 7 months living and working as an English language assistant in Lille, France. This experience was incredible in so many ways, but what I was truly missing was being surrounded by a supportive and familiar community. So, I am eager to join a new community in Pittsburgh and learn more about the nonprofit community.
I’ve been lucky enough to be apart of so many amazing communities in Pittsburgh and I am looking forward to being apart of a new community in Pittsburgh. My hopes for the year is to professionally and personally grow as a member of Pittsburgh’s community and to further develop a better idea of what direction I want my career to go into. I’m so excited to experience Pittsburgh as a PULSE fellow and to
Part of my first task as a PULSE participant is to assemble a team of people who will support me in this work. I realize that I can’t do this work alone, that I need others to come alongside me and partner with me.
Would you please consider supporting me in this work? I am in the process of raising a minimum of $2500 to cover expenses for this year of service and leadership. Your support will help impact the lives of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable.
