How many people do you know that can honestly say they find pleasure in reporting to work each day? Add me to your list. My work as Manager of Grassroots Mobilization for Tell Them
is a gratifying experience. I am living my dream as a Youth and Women’s Health Advocate and creating long-lasting relationships along the way. I can’t end this year without bragging about some of the most amazing people who are key to our success. Meet a few of our Grassroots Mobilization Key Advocates:
: I met Jasmine at a community event last year. Jasmine knows what she wants in life, and that is success! She also knows that in order to achieve success you must first lend a helping hand to others. I can always count on Jasmine to step-up when Tell Them
needs her. She helps with Tell Them
tabling events, building partnerships with community based organizations, calling and writing letters to legislators. Thank You Jasmine!!!
: Robin and I met when she called our office looking to volunteer. Our first phone conversation lasted about 45 minutes! We found out that we both have a passion to serve and empower women. We bonded over the fact that we are both single parents to one son. Our greatest bonding moment came when we found out our birthdays (which she refers to as Diva Day, of course I had to steal it) are seven days apart. Robin lives in Hartsville, SC (a place I had never heard of until I met her, LOL). She has helped spread Tell Them
’s message and forge strong partnerships with organizations in the Darlington County communities. You rock, Diva!!!
: Denise is a HIV Prevention and Community Engagement Specialist at Catawba Care in Rock Hill, SC. Denise was one of the first people to reach out to me when I started my position at Tell Them
. She invited me to come spend the day with her. During that day she introduced me to several community leaders and assisted with arranging speaking engagements and community events for Tell Them
in Chester, York and Lancaster counties. If I haven’t said it enough, I appreciate you, Denise!
: Amber is the Public Relations and Youth Coordinator for Beyond Differences in Greenville, SC. She is a goal-driven young lady focused on addressing social issues that face young people in South Carolina. I have a lot of respect and admiration for this young lady. In my book she is a “mover and a shaker” and I look forward to future collaborations! You are on a path to success, Amber! Stay focused!!
: Quintera is a senior at Clemson University (Go Tigers!). I met Quintera at church. During our initial conversation she asked me about my professional career. As I told her, she began to tell me about how she has an interest in teen pregnancy prevention because she has seen the affects it had on some of her classmates. Of course I recruited her to be one of my key advocates. She is always available when I call or text to ask her to assist with a tabling event or attending community events on behalf of Tell Them
. I appreciate your dependability!
These are just a few of the great people I have met along my professional journey with Tell Them
. Each of them have made an impact on my success as a professional and made a huge impression in my personal life. Have a great Thanksgiving and remember to show love and support to the great people in your life.
