I received the Allen New Futures scholarship in 2007 with the assistance and recommendation of the Upward Bound program at the LAYC. With this scholarship, I was able to attend George Mason University and obtain my Bachelor’s Degree in Government & International Politics.
Currently, I am working for a non-profit organization, United Cerebral Palsy, as the Manager of Development for the national office in downtown DC. I have over 6 years of experience in the fundraising/development world with two years of experience specific to this manager role. I am grateful to work for an organization whose mission is to provide a life without limits and services to people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. UCP is made up of 65 independent affiliates across the US and Canada.
