Well, hey there! I'm new to the IndieGoGo community... but had I known about it earlier I sure would have been funding some of its amazing projects. As a recent student of all things nonprofit management related, I know how far a little fundraising can go :)
Originally I'm from Atlanta, Georgia, and currently I reside in beautiful Monterey, California (where I recently graduated with a Masters of Public Administration degree from the Monterey Institute of International Studies). I've been passionate about cultural awareness and exchange since a young age and have had the pleasure of traveling to Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru in the past year. I've also got a strong curiosity for market-based poverty alleviation strategies and have thus focused my international development studies on social entrepreneurship and enterprise. My most recent graduate work includes developing a community savings group for artisans in the rural Andean community of Choqueconcha, Peru (check out the link in my profile). I speak French fluently and couldnâ€™t possibly be more excited to live and work for the first time in Francophone Africa while serving Kivaâ€™s mission and seeing in person the impacts of microfinance.
