Pre-COVID-19, Nancy says she rarely used LinkedIn because it intimidated her to see so many successful people. During her spare time in quarantine, she attended virtual workshops that reminded her of her potential and encouraged her to take advantage of this time and started to actively use LinkedIn. It is through LinkedIn that she eventually came across Project Snapshot. She sent her resume in “and the rest is history.”
Nancy is a rising senior at the University of California Irvine. She says the idea of a “dream job” is an intimidating concept because “life happens, things change, and that’s okay” but she says she’s interested in working in human resources or talent acquisition.
Living just a few minutes away from Disneyland, Nancy loves visiting the theme park with her sister. They “love singing along to all the classic Disney songs and are like children skipping down main street to see Mickey Mouse.”
Nancy loves that everyone on the Project Snapshot team is so driven and passionate about giving back to others. “We’re learning together, growing together, and changing the future together, which is really inspiring.”
