As I begin my professional life I often feel that it will be impossible to achieve a balance between financial self-sufficiency and giving back to the community. ServiceCorps is the answer to this predicament. As you articulated clearly during the information session at Citi this summer, ServiceCorps is working to solve this typical "graduation dilemma" by providing the opportunity to find that balance. I look forward to the possibility of making a difference in a year that will set the tone for my career, while maintaining my excitement for a long and challenging future with an established and influential company like Citi. I am excited by the opportunity to act as a strong advocate for my ServiceCorps nonprofit upon my return to the firm. Along with other fellowship alumni, this experience will allow me to bring a new perspective to the organization, giving other Citi employees the resources and knowledge to get involved in improving their local communities.
I am currently a senior at Vanderbilt University majoring in Human and Organizational Development with a minor in Corporate Strategy. I spent the spring of my junior year studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark and traveling across Europe. After ServiceCorps I will be returning to Citi in the Human Resources division.
I have long been interested and involved in service within my community, on my campus, and across the world. After working in Israel, Kenya, and Turkey with local non-profits I saw the positive impact these organizations can have. Although I have found my work abroad to be quite rewarding I have always believed that charity begins at home. There are so many local opportunities for both nonprofits and social enterprises to become more efficient and effective in serving their clientele and establishing sustainable solutions. I am passionate about analyzing a problem to facilitate my understanding of the steps needed to solve the multifaceted problems New York is facing.
