Isabel’s Dream of Empowering Women In Her Own Words:
“Throughout my high school years, I attended an all-girls private school that primarily focused their studies on advancing the education of young women.
After high school and graduating from Pasadena City College, I transferred to Cal State Fullerton where I first majored in liberal arts, BUT then quickly switched to Women’s Studies after taking some courses I really enjoyed.
I learned all about women’s contributions to the arts, literature, politics, medicine, and teaching fields.
I LOVED taking these classes and enjoyed learning about the many significant changes in society WOMEN have made.
This is actually what inspired me to pursue the educational field and start my teaching career.
I’ve worked with children at elementary school levels as well as adults learning English as a Second Language.
I began working with adult language learners because I wanted to help BUILD BRIDGES across different cultures.
It was truly an amazing opportunity to see adults learn a new language and MAKE ADVANCEMENTS IN THEIR CAREERS and IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.
I enjoy helping people of all cultures, ages, races, sexes, religions, and social backgrounds.
I wanted to volunteer for a Non-Profit organization that helps people from all walks of life, and in my research I came across Wando International.
I saw that Wando International is an organization that helps women living in poverty FIND THEIR VOICE and allows them to BUILD BUSINESSES in a place where they don’t have a lot of resources.
It is a great organization that EMPOWERS WOMEN in their own communities in Uganda, and gives them OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPLORE where they would not have otherwise.
I am extremely excited and privileged to be able to volunteer with this organization that is helping so many people reach their FULL potential!
I hope to bring my Warmth and Care to this organization and provide as much help as I can to the vulnerable women involved.”
