When I graduated from University of Pittsburgh in April, I knew I was ending a chapter and beginning a new journey as a recent college graduate. While it was difficult leaving the familiar; University of Pittsburgh, friends, and family, I decided to join the PULSE program in Pittsburgh, PA.
PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. They invite recent, college graduates (like myself) to partner with local nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. I got excited about the PULSE program because I wanted to be a conscientious and intentional medical practioner who could empathize deeply with my patients. To that end, I spent my undergraduate career developing my communication skills and being intentional in how I approached people of different communities and background. Thus, I wish to continue developing those skills serving in a non-profit organization while living in a community with recent graduates like myself.
I am looking forward to truly making deeper human connections with people. My hope for the year is to become a more intentional and conscientious human being.
Part of my first task as a PULSE participant is to assemble a team of people who will support me in this work. I realize that I can’t do this work alone, that I need others to come alongside me and partner with me.
Would you please consider supporting me in this work? I am in the process of raising a minimum of $2500 to cover expenses for this year of service and leadership. Your support will help impact the lives of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable. Please fill out the enclosed reply envelope and return it to PULSE, regardless of ability/interest to give financially. You can also give online at www.pulsepittsburgh.org/support. Thank you for your continued investment in my life and in the life of PULSE.
