Tuesday was national philanthropy day. A day that “acknowledges the entire spectrum of services provided by the nonprofit community and recognizes the profound impact that philanthropy has on the fabric of society (afpnet.org).”
When I was younger I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. At the age of 5, I proclaimed I wanted to be a model. At the age of 10, I thought I wanted to be a psychiatrist. At the age of 15, I wanted to go into international business. When it came time to choose a major in college I was lost! I started on a business administration track assuming that I could probably apply the information to any career I chose. Halfway through undergrad I was not enjoying my classes. My mom helped talk me through my confusion and helped me realize what was important to me.
I have been volunteering as far back as I can remember. Through church, school clubs, and Girl Scouts I spent countless hours helping others. I decided that the nonprofit industry was where I wanted to focus my efforts. After finishing my Bachelors in Family, Youth, and Community Science I went on to get my Masters in Nonprofit Management. The nonprofit community has always been a part of my life and CBTF has given me the opportunity to turn my passion into a career.
CBTF has touched the lives of many families and I can only hope that we continue to grow!
