Day to Day

I support the fundraising events and key programs of the Taco Bell Foundation. This looks like: watching video applications for the Live Mas Scholarship, answering questions for future applicants, brainstorming cool opportunities/events to take previous scholarship recipients to, and discovering fresh new ways to fundraise for the Foundation. In short, I answer emails, meet with my team to discuss ideas, and watch videos of super talented youth doing amazing things.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Working well with others; caring about the next generation of creators, dreamers, and innovators.
