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.
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?
