Our office reached capacity this winter by welcoming two new members to the team: JC Sanchez and Willow Brugh. We are fortunate to have them on board to expand our program work in California and abroad.
JC, our new Technology Capacity Builder, interned with Aspiration in 2013 as a student of the Everett Program at UC Santa Cruz. His serendipitous return will allow him to continue the work he started two years ago. Conversing over coffee in downtown Oakland, he explains:
When I was first at Aspiration as an intern, I was made the unofficial translator. For example, I was given the job of translating the Publishing Matrix. So hopefully, that is going to carry over.
