Raven first experienced the Black & Latino Achievers program as a participant. In 2009 she received the Black and Latino Achievers Scholarship to attend the College of Saint Rose where she graduated with a degree in Communications and specialization in Public Relations and Advertising. After college she found her way back to the Y as an intern and eventually worked her way to a Marketing Coordinator position. She now joins our Achievers staff team as the coordinator for our Schenectady program, bringing strong leadership, motivational and listening skills with her. She recalls, “one of my favorite ‘Achiever moments’ was witnessing one of my mentees receive a check to the college of her dreams.” Throughout Raven’s life she has always had a passion for paying it forward. She is elated to give back to the program that once gave to her.
