Two Perspectives for the Betterment of Colorado

In the two internships I’ve had since my first year of college, working in the Colorado state legislature and now at El Pomar Foundation, improving Colorado’s well-being has been the foremost objective of both institutions. Both work toward the betterment of Colorado, although they utilize extremely different means. When I first came to El Pomar I had a question in the back of my mind: who’s better at it?

Philanthropy Comes Full Circle

Now a Fellow at El Pomar, I recently realized that I have come full circle. What started out as an interest in high school has since bloomed into a postgraduate career. Looking back on my excursions through rural Colorado, it is understandable why I value El Pomar’s statewide focus. While the major populations in Colorado are found along the Front Range, some of the most committed individuals live where nobody is looking.

Hunting Down a New Path

Playing outside, going for a swim, hiking, hunting, fishing: these are all easily accessible for most Coloradans. Being physically active and enjoying everything Colorado has to offer is an amazing privilege but others are stripped of that privilege or simply do not have the opportunity due to disabilities.

My HOBY Adventure

When a person volunteers for HOBY, they are not just a volunteer, they are family. HOBY is a huge network of people who love to learn about leadership, make new friends, and change lives for the better.

Leadership in the Face of Adversity

On the third day of hiking on windy trails and camping under thistle-filled trees, adversity manifested itself in the form of a 50 foot cliff. Although I do not consider myself to be much of a rock climber, I made summiting this cliff my personal challenge.
