If you don't already know, She's the First is a non-profit that provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries who will be the first in their families to graduate from high school.

is my ability to inspire individuals to unlock their power to make change and help philanthropists and corporations to invest.
My natural strengths lie in activating younger generations to take action, helping them to find their voice, confidence, and full potential to make a difference. I've quickly learned how to reach up to older generations and across industry sectors to create high-value partnerships that meet our shared goal of education equality.
My training as a journalist, mixed with my expertise in social and digital media, has given me an edge in launching successful grassroots fundraising campaigns and high-profile events. I strategize communications and nurture relationships with everyone from the $5 donor to the five-figure funder.
I draw my experience from:
I'm a runner, certified Spinning instructor, and yogi (you'd never guess gym was my least favorite part of school!)
I'd love to teach a Spinning class for your friends or employees who are raising funds or awareness for She's the First. Book the studio space in NYC and I'm there!
