Not solely did the category make me really feel infinitely extra lucky for the issues I’ve, nevertheless it additionally made me wish to make a distinction firsthand. And after studying extra in regards to the Wisconsin Microfinance mission and the superb individuals who work right here, I really feel like I’m lastly doing that.
Exterior of labor, I like to color and draw. In the event you noticed me in particular person, I’d in all probability be sketching or writing away on my laptop computer. I’m tremendous keen about issues like music, artwork, motion pictures, and social justice points. Please, be happy to achieve out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org you probably have any questions on me or the group.
