“But the best part of that moment was the fact that the Year Up program was being noticed as a feeder for young people with no traditional opportunities to make an impact in the world. That was a huge win for me.
The most impactful thing that I’ve ever done at Facebook was helping run the Year Up @ Facebook program. I oversaw the hiring of over 500 interns with 48 percent eventually receiving a full-time role. I worked tirelessly to ensure that it was a standout program for the company. This meant making sure our interns had mentors, guidance counsellors, and guidelines for the program.”
