My First Love: Jezuba
They say that no matter what, you’ll never forget your first love. And when it comes to my involvement with nonprofit organizations, Jezuba would be my first love.
My Jezuba Experience
What I learned from working at Jezuba
When I started working at Jezuba in June, I was excited, but extremely uncertain. I didn’t know what my role would mean, what kind of people I would be working with, or what my end goal would be. All I knew was that I liked Jezuba’s goal and wanted to give back. During my first day, I logged into our newly approved Global Giving Campaign page to upload some content only to mistakenly find out that there were only nine days left in the June campaign. I panicked thinking I had barely more than a week to design, build, and execute a fundraising strategy. That day, I finished creating our Global Giving project and emailed Rebecca, both for final approval and to ask here if this was physically possible to do. That was when I found out that our campaign was to take place during the September Accelerator program, going from September 14 - 30th, not the June program. This meant that I had a lot more time to plan. Setting up the page was already done. What was I to do now?
