Stephanie is a York University student dedicated to global issues and social justice. When she contacted Casa - Pueblito to be a volunteer we knew right away that someone special had arrived in our midst, at a pivotal time for our organization.
With Stephanie's leadership we embarked on an "Open Closets" project to: 1) Do a massive clean up and re-arrangement of our office; 2) Find Casa Treasures in our closets from our members from around the world; and 3) sell these treasures at our garage sale fundraiser. Stephanie decided to dedicate the funds we raised to the emerging Latinx artists that will be exhibiting their work in our BAM exhibition this September (stay tuned!).
In addition to transforming our Casa - Pueblito world to welcome new staff and volunteers in a new, energized space, Stephanie created an opportunity for more volunteers and staff to get involved in this project. We had fun along the way!
Stephanie is on the road to transform the world with her care and authenticity to address issues that are critical to Latin Americans. Her next step is her internship in Mexico City. With our best wishes for a great summer, we're sharing Our Story About Stephanie Photo Album. Enjoy!
