As a professional in Washington, DC, I have become involved in the Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, an organization working to reduce gun violence and advance rights of LGBTQ+ people. Through my volunteering with the Pride Fund, I manage the organization’s Twitter account and collaborate with organization leaders and other social media specialists to advance a strategy aimed at boosting the organization’s visibility and engagement online through industry best practices.

During my four years as an undegraduate at Virginia Tech, I participated in The Big Event, an annual service event to give back to the local community. Further, through my work as a student leader in the Virginia Tech Residential Leadership Community, I participated and help coordinate a
number of independent service projects.

During my Washington, DC-based internship program, I participated in a Washington Parks & People project to help improve the Washington, DC community through creating safe, welcoming public parks throughout the District of Columbia.
