Jessie's adventure toSojourners really began in high school when she started to realize that there is a history of social injustices in her great American country. Later studying psychology, minoring in Ethnic Studies and Spanish in college, she delved deeper into the many histories of injustices not only in America, but also around the world. She was involved in the Council of University Social Entrepreneurs who were dedicated to seek new ways to create business, but at the same time to be socially responsible to our brothers and sisters all over the world.
Being aware of such innovative ideas to fight poverty in certain communities internationally only increased Jessie's passion for justice. After much thought in regards to her direction, she decided to google "christian social justice groups" and Wah-la! She found Sojourners and its unique Internship Program.
Jessie is excited to be working with like-minded individuals for Christ.
