But anyway, I've been hired as part of the US Outreach department, so I am assisting in the programs that reach out to sponsors and potential sponsors across the US. Part of what has made this such an awesome experience for me is that CFCA is an organization I had only dreamed of interning at while in high school. Upon entering Rockhurst, I was thinking of places that I could work at following graduation; I had wanted to work for a non-profit that was working to help people in developing countries, and immediately CFCA came to mind, because my parents have sponsored multiple children through them since I was small. So I am very excited to be a part of the growing team at CFCA!
We're also getting to welcome several employees from CFCA in one of my classes next week, and are going to be talking about the video Rise & Dream, a documentary film about a group of students in the Philippines preparing to perform in a concert for peace. The film won numerous awards including the Reel Rose Best Documentary Film Award and the Thin Line Film Fest's audience choice award. You can watch the film Rise & Dream online here and learn how to get involved.
