What do I care about?
Writing has always been my haven. However, my primary passion lies in supporting humanitarian causes that strive to enhance the quality of life for everyone. I have acquired experience in the corporate world, but have always made sure to be involved in several mission-driven projects with non-profit organizations. Through these endeavors, I have witnessed firsthand the transformative impact of fostering inclusivity and community. I firmly believe in the importance of equity, and I wholeheartedly dedicate myself to improving the lives of all based on these principles.

Why Interise?
I have always aspired to apply my expertise in development and marketing within a purpose-driven context, where I can make a meaningful difference in our communities. Since I believe in equity and that knowledge is the greatest gift one can receive, Interise's mission to empower established small businesses owned by historically disadvantaged entrepreneurs through diverse programs resonates deeply with my purpose and principles. This is why I am a committed member of the Interise team, relentlessly striving to foster a more inclusive economy.
