“As a firefighter, entrepreneur, and challenge seeker I’ve taken many risks in my short career. However in less than 3 months, I am preparing to take my love for social impact and space exploration to new heights (pun intended) as stand with other young professionals around the country, raising awareness and money to alleviate global poverty.
As a member of YAO, I have witnessed the value of Opportunity International’s reach firsthand as I spent a month in the last year volunteering support for Opportunity International-Nicaragua and can personally attest to the hundreds of persons the organization touches. Although I was unable to attend the skydive in 2011, this year I have been honoured to work alongside a dynamic group of creative individuals as part of the planning team to design what promises to milestone weekend for fundraising, building relationships and literally diving into new experiences.
Whether you are or are not a member of the microfinance community, please join me on October 27th and advocate for Opportunity!” –Samantha Snabes
