My work is well-suited for benefit shows for social justice issues. Recently, I participated in a benefit show auction for Standing Rock hosted by Studio and Art Gallery called “Cranky Yellow” based In South City Saint Louis and another South City Venue called “Plow” that does fund raising for people in need and social justice issues in the Saint Louis area. Both venues raised money for supplies for the water protectors at Standing Rock-- money raised gave them a great ability to keep fighting. With Plow, the fund-raiser was to help raised money for the venue to continue hosting benefit shows which contribute money towards these and other organizations fighting racism and hate groups in the St. Louis area, people struggling with legal issues in regards to their abusers, and urban
I am interested in pursuing a degree in business because a variety of job opportunities are represented within the field. My parents also owned their own business, which was the main reason I wanted to pursue a business degree. I was inspired by their work ethics, and how they overcame their struggles and obtained success within their business and recognition in society. Originally, my major was in management. However, I recently became more interested in an ISOM major after attending an “Ask the Professionals” event. This is because an ISOM major combines both business and IT skills to provide a unique skill set that is highly sought after in the current job market. My ideal job upon graduation would be working in a company like Freddie Mac where I can apply my knowledge and work within a team setting.

I am part the United Way committee at my work place. This past year we raised $377,000 in countless fundraisers. I also am helping with an organization that touches home with me, The Circle of Hope. I am creating the T-Shirt for this year’s, “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” which is an event that raises money and awareness for domestic violence, rape victims and more.
I have volunteered more than 1700 hours in the last four years and currently am in charge of two projects (care packages for homeless, PowerPack Yuma).
Recently, I partnered with an organization called S.H.A.P.E (Self-esteem, Harmony, Awareness, Pride, & Education) to assist with fund raising for scholarships. I created a T-Shirt for the organization and 100% of the proceeds went towards to scholarship. This opportunity gave me a chance to take the leadership role on creating the necessary steps in organizing and managing with the founding leaders. This scholarship was able to raise $1,500 and three $500 scholarships were presented to students in need of the financial
However, I have become a mini entrepreneur, starting my own eBay business, which has turned me into a strategist. Not only do I find eBay fun, but the website has helped me develop my leadership and communication skills with my clients, as well as my ability to network. As a result, my love of marketing will make me an effective business major. I intend to use my skills in Florida State University’s College of Business. In FSU’s College of Business I would like to immerse myself in business related opportunities, and interact with professional organizations through corporate trips, competitions and industry-specific career fairs. By committing to programs such as the American Marketing Association Student Chapter (AMA), I will be able to develop my leadership skills and use these skills in marketing. I would love to participate in the Logo Contest, and the Involvement Fair that the AMA Group is known for. In the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO), I intend to become a great entrepreneur and have the ability to explore opportunities through business creation. These programs will enrich my artistic and marketing abilities, and guide me to become a skilled
You can plan something as simple as a barbecue or host an event tailored to your cause. Why not plan a 5 kilometer walk or run, and encourage owners to participate with their dogs? Ask participants to find sponsors who would be willing to donate a certain amount based on how fast they run the event. You could give out prizes for the dog-owner pair that finishes first, as well as for other superlatives, such as best dressed, most enthusiastic, or most raised. Publicize your event on your crowdfunding page, and have people RSVP by posting in the comments section.Help volunteer your time when your there so they do not have to hire more people.When someone goes to the animal shelter the could feed the animals, and give the animals a shot if they need it.So people need to go to the animal shelter and help with the
With months of preparation, collection, and distribution, my fundraiser funded vaccinations, food, and toys for cats and dogs at a local shelter. I was elated to know that I made a difference, and I desired more. To do so, I joined my county’s 4-H group and gardened in urban areas. Even though I never gardened in my life, the garden was a place of euphoria and tranquility. Many children, senior citizens, and individuals who were homeless or in homeless shelters frequently visited our garden. We became a source of learning for children, fresh produce for the homeless to eat, and relaxation for the senior citizens. I was captivated by the impact just a simple garden made. Progressively, I made strides in bettering and advancing my community, school, environment, and peers. I had a hunger for volunteerism, so I ran and won class presidency for all four years of high school, became a student ambassador in my school, a county science ambassador, a national 4-H delegate for citizenship, and many other awards and titles. Instead of volunteering for service hours on paper, a certificate, or a title, I gave back because it is simply right. With a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and

My name is Abie Pessima. I am a student at Wilkes University studying business management and will also like to minor in business administration.

My immediate and long term goals are as follows: obtaining a Masters degree in Educational Leadership. My long term goal is to open a Charter School in my neighborhood, which would service Caribbean-American Children. I strongly believe in community building, and opening this Charter is my way of giving back to my community. This population usually consists of at-risk children and their families. If I could accomplish my plan, it would be the fulfillment of a lifelong dream. I have taken the necessary steps in maintaining a close relationship with business associates in my neighborhood.
