Oh hey Jackson! How's life as the NMSA's Executive Secretary? Awesome? Awesome.
Jackson is so cool, you guys. He's a 24 year old Senior here at BYU from Arlington, MA and is studying Political Science as well as Nonprofit Management and Civic Engagement Leadership who loves to read and can perform Daveed Diggs' "Guns and Ships" rap from "Hamilton." Too cool, huh?
His plan for the future is to work professionally in the Nonprofit Sector as a grant writer, social media manager, and more! He's on the board for a few reasons: "Aside from providing much-needed hours for the CNP certification and a strong resume builder, I wanted to get a taste of how a nonprofit board operates first-hand." From this experience along with others throughout his college career involving the Nonprofit Sector, he will be able to excel. "The way I see it, if I'm devoting 8-9 hours a day, 5 days a week to a job, I want that time and energy to serve a higher purpose rather than solely focusing on making money. I want my professional life to contribute to solving problems that plague the world."
Jackson wants to encourage you all to take advantage of the internship fair coming up this month (October). He attended in 2016 and was able to arrange two different internships as a result, so he knows how beneficial of an activity the fair is!
Come say hi to Jackson and the rest of the board at our activities. :) For questions or inquiries, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
