When I graduated from the 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; Pitt, 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 it was an opportunity to experience a meaningful and different line of work, while also advancing my career through the many experiences I expect to have.
I am looking forward to growing both professionally and personally with this opportunity, and engaging with a variety of people from a wide range of backgrounds. My hope for the year is to form impactful relationships, grow as a leader, and to be able to integrate my engineering education with my work at a non-profit.
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.
