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 James Baldwin because his actions, words, and beliefs inspire me to take a stand for what I believe in, unapologetically.

What motivates you to create social impact?

The injustices, and inequalities that exist in our world today.

Host Site Overview

The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation is a nonprofit community organization that helps children, families and older adults in the greater east metro area of Saint Paul through direct service programs, research, leadership development and community building.

Host Site Project

The fellow will focus on operations management in three specific areas: Communications, Data and Evaluation, and Partnership Development. The fellow will build internal communications tools and support the St. Paul Promise Neighborhood communications team. The data and evaluation work will involve creating a template for monthly reports while acting as the point of contact for Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood’s evaluation projects. In addition to working with the evaluators, the fellow will ensure data entry fidelity to/from partners and school sites, as well as the lead in reviewing data and making recommendations. SPPN’s partners, contractors, and consultants need to submit reports, and the fellow will build procedures to ensure this happens uniformly and consistently. SPPN also receives grants from foundations that need regular reports, and the fellow will also build procedures to maintain those relationships. Both processes will involve consolidating progress reports of partners and contractors, and providing the necessary stakeholders with logistical support.
