After graduation I want to work with a nonprofit whose mission is to protect endangered wildlife.I am very excited to get to spread the news about this minor and how helpful it can be to future career goals! Working with nonprofits is such a rewarding experience.”

“Nonprofit work has been something that I have been involved in since the age of four. I truly believe that we all can give something back to others around us as described in a quote by Albert Pine that I live by that says, ‘What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.’ I am very excited to be a Nonprofit Studies Minor Ambassador to spread the word about this incredible minor!”

Interests: Sustainable nonprofits, sports in general (but focused on NC State sports)

“The nonprofit sector is where I’d like to work, and this semester I’m starting my business plan for my own nonprofit through my entrepreneurship and business classes. I’d like some more experience in a leadership position, specifically a more formal one like being an ambassador. enjoy helping people and getting people interested in nonprofits, especially sustainable nonprofits, where they make their own money and don’t rely so much on fundraising.”
