Lesson Check-In provides free online tutoring and mentorship support to middle/ high school students by pairing them with a dedicated undergraduate/graduate volunteer coach.
I have initiated strategic partnerships with Christmas in the Wards and the Handles Foundation brining in over 200 additional students to benefit from our services.
I currently manage our organizations expenses, file taxes annually, apply for grants weekly, and seek recurring donors.
The nsoro Foundation awards scholarships to youth who have aged out of the United States foster care system.
I participate in the annual application selection meetings, reviewing essays and scholar profiles to determine fund allocations.
I have set up the ball room for the annual Starfish Ball, mailed invitations, and engage donors.
Michigan State University Writing Centre
2016 - 2018
The Writing Center provides in person and online writing consultations for students to enhance their essays at different stages.
I worked with 3-6 students weekly, brainstorming theses, editing completed works prior to submission, restructuring, and more.
Being an English major, editing and research are aspects of the writing process that I strongly value and would also help students with finding scholarly and accredited sources using the school's various databases.
This was an annual leadership retreat taking place in the Breslin Student Events Centre in East Lansing, Michigan led my the Women's Basketball Team, along with the head coach. This is a grassroots initiative designed for young girls to teach the importance of positivity, kindness, safety, and more.
I prepared for this retreat by seeking partnerships with food vendors, donors, and additional volunteers.
I was also involved in the design of staff T-Shirts, content creation for informational sessions, ordering props such as 100+ yoga mats, and other items needed to ensure a great event.
Holy Spirit Catholic Church
Sunday School Instructor
Working as a Sunday school teacher throughout High School allowed me a chance to interact with kindergarten students.
With my own class, I was tasked with the responsibility to create lesson plans, crafts, and interactive games to help my students learn Biblical lessons and simple prayers while holding their attention.
I also planned short excursions for the students such as visitations with Priests and exploring/explaining a trail of the 10 Commandments.
