Administrative Assistant, FAITHS & Multicultural Fellowship Programs
Why do you do what you do?
I just like to help people. We like to think that race, gender, and sexuality separate us. But in reality, we’re all experiencing the same human experience, whether that’s life, death, love, and all of the things in between.
What drew you to the foundation?
When I was a student at UC Berkeley, SFF’s Chief of Staff, Brandi Howard, came and spoke in one of my classes. She talked about what we can do with an African American Studies degree. I was inspired seeing a Black woman who had graduated from Berkeley come back to campus and talk about community philanthropy. Soon after, Berkeley’s VèVè A. Clark Institute for Engaged Scholars of African American Studies nominated me to be a Koshland Program intern at SFF.
