1) How did you first hear about GOTO?
I first heard about it through Nisha Phatak, who is currently volunteering as well. I was trying to find something that I could give back to the community and feel as though I was a bigger part than just signing up for random volunteer opportunities and Nisha told me about GOTO. I figured it would be awesome to get involved!
2) What are your roles as a GOTO volunteer?
I’m helping out the marketing committee, mainly updating the blog posts and such.
3) How would you describe GOTO to a friend?
I would describe it as a group of young professionals that really want to help the youth explore opportunities they may never have had. GOTO does this by organizing events and giving tribute to the Appel Farm and the many talented kids that deserve a chance to be creative! It’s exciting to see the kids really develop their talents knowing you are behind the scenes!
4) What is your favorite GOTO moment so far?
Seeing as how I have only been a part of GOTO for about a month, it would have to be the Halloween Party as a whole. It was great to see so many people brave the horrible weather to celebrate the night and give back to an awesome cause. Everyone had great costumes on- but I think Beeker takes the cake! Best costume ever!
5) Where do you see GOTO 20 years from now?
I see it expanding to other cities, I mean, it was relatively easy to convince me to get involved and it’s for an amazing cause.
BONUS: If GOTO sent you to Arts & Music Summer Camp, what would be your major?
I have always had a passion for photography, I love being behind the camera and capturing moments before they pass by. It’s awesome when you can take a picture and have a moment forever!
