"I find so much joy when I have the opportunity to pass on knowledge, forge connections, and help individuals progress to the next phase of their lives," Andrea shares. "Students often come to me seeking advice on marketing themselves, crafting press releases, strategic partnerships, and interacting with the media–that's where I excel. I can contribute my expertise and be a source of guidance for our students."
In addition to hands-on experiences at Youth on Record, Andrea emphasizes the significance of showing young people the value of presenting their authentic selves to the community.
"Authenticity holds a crucial place, particularly when collaborating with your community and other individuals, regardless of their age. Building impactful relationships is essential. After all, we're all in this weird life adventure together."
