I have a strong interest in helping the less fortunate, particularly in education and my heart is wanting to do so in Africa! I especially am interested in education for girls and women, but would love to work with anyone in need. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry (graduated 2005), with a minor study in Art. I have lots of art, computer and charity work experience.
I have been volunteering with a non-profit building a school and orphanage in Liberia. For that organization I manage the website, Facebook and YouTube accounts. I write and send newsletters to our donors, I am a key member of the fundraising team and I have put together and am managing a volunteer team working to increase awareness and funds for our organization.
Because the organization is still in the construction phase, I am interested in getting some submersion experience with various NGOs in multiple countries in Africa this year (2015) and maybe into 2016! I hope to learn more about NGOs, Africa, teaching, myself and how I can be useful to others.
