Searching for your first full-time job after college can be a daunting task. For me, one thought persisted amid the uncertainty: I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. Thankfully I found Tenacity while searching through the AmeriCorps Jobs Portal, and immediately knew it would be a great fit.
During my time as an AmeriCorps Fellow, I was able to harness multiple passions—for sports, for teaching, and for serving youth—in order to become a better professional. I learned from multiple mentors, was able to teach during and after school, and cultivated great friendships with my cohort of Tenacity Fellows.
Throughout the year, I constantly felt inspired by Tenacity’s mission and the impact we made on students and families. I worked with students not just as a teacher, but as a coach, and an advisor—in a way that was truly unique. For that reason, after a few years of teaching and furthering my education, I returned to Tenacity in order to be part of this exceptional and impressive community.
