Meet Grace Harker, Sponsor Liaison
I am a junior at Brigham Young University, studying Marketing Management and Spanish. I am originally from the Northwest in the Portland, OR area, but my studies have brought me southeast a few hundred miles and I love it! My experience with non-profit organizations began in 2012 when I traveled to Guatemala with Medical Teams International.
It was there that I developed the beginnings of my passion for humanitarian service. Since then, I have lived for a summer in 2014 in Puebla, Mexico, where I taught English to children.
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Color My World and to be able to further my experience in the non-profit field of work.
I am excited for the challenges and experiences this internship will give me, and hope that I can be a great asset in marketing and expanding this company.

I have a strong interest in helping those who are suffering and trapped in the cycle of poverty.
