What are you looking forward to most in your time with A2SF?

 

I’m most looking forward to meeting new people from different organizations and bringing fun activities to Ann Arbor’s kids!

What is your all-time favorite movie?

The best movie I’ve seen recently is Coco because of how much the themes of love, family, acceptance, and art resonated with me. I’m the first in my family to pursue art as a career, and the love and support my family has shown me are what have gotten me here.

I am most looking forward to seeing and learning how everyone’s roles impact the organization as a whole. I also can’t wait to start my projects centered around donor relations and stewardship!

What is your all-time favorite movie?

If I had to pick a favorite movie it would be between The Matrix and Coming to America. I would choose Coming to America only because it takes place in Queens and Eddie Murphy is hilarious!
