My name is Samantha Gonzales and I am a fifth year double-majoring in History and Corporate Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. As my dual majors show, I am interested in history and the world of communications, while being a passionate Texas Longhorns football fan. When I am not working, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants in Austin, and visiting museums. I am interested in pursuing my communications degree at the graduate level and ultimately working in the non-profit area.
PeopleFund interested me primarily because they are a non-profit that focuses on helping others (including non-profits). The attitude I felt with PeopleFund was one of possibility for all. This attitude extends to their staff and their clients – and I wanted to be included in this. I am excited to be mentored by those who believe anything is possible and genuinely enjoy helping others. I look forward to learning more about the workings of a non-profit on a daily basis, interacting with Austin-based clients, and learning new things that will help both PeopleFund and I in the future.
