If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I would have dinner with Barrack Obama in his 20’s and get to know him well before he became the POTUS.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I have seen first-hand what organizations can do to make a difference overseas, and I want to be a part of it.

Host Site Overview

Renaissance transforms lives through entrepreneurship.

Host Site Project

Renaissance brings the power of entrepreneurship to under-resourced communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Renaissance’s comprehensive programs and services respond to the multiple needs of diverse communities while also directly addressing the societal, economic and personal challenges under-resourced individuals face as they strive to achieve economic independence. Our clients reflect the diversity of the Bay Area: 88% are very low- to moderate-income; 68% are women; 62% are people of color. The New Sector RISE AmeriCorps Fellow will focus on program operations, including research, data compilation and analysis, and outreach. The Fellow will work with staff at our Richmond and SF Bayview Centers, completing several projects for each of these Centers, and participate in three organization-wide project committees, all with the focus on building the capacity of the programs. At the completion of each project, the Fellow will document the operations in order to repeat effective methods moving forward.
