My name is Aura Ordóñez and I believe that learning from space makers is key to transformational change. I graduated from Florida International University in 2017 with dual degree in Political Science and International Relations. During my undergraduate career, I forged my passion for public policy with legislative affairs as a public affairs intern in Rockville, Maryland, and as Congressional and senate Intern - where I worked on strategic approaches to coalition building and government affairs in my community. I have also served as first Vice President for the second national club for UN Women in the United States. While I work on my master’s degree, I am also a research intern at HEAR Congo.
This summer HEAR Congo is organizing a very important trip with a delegation of professionals and community leaders from South Florida and around the United States to spearhead education innovation with the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am thrilled that we can all work together to accomplish global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Educating women and girls in Congo can only contribute to a more sustainable Africa and a better world.
I was recently invited to serve as a coordinator on this amazing trip. I am thrilled for this opportunity. My role will be significant as I make sure we reach our project implementation is successful and our results are reached. This can only be possible with your donation today. Funds raised will cover travel costs for this trip and getting one step closer towards closing the gender gap in the world and in Congo.
