Damaris Garcia, Administrative Professional in Strategy Marketing and Growth (SMG), says that her call to action is to help others.
“We often take things for granted when they come to us without much effort,” she says. “I wasn’t raised in the most affluent household, but I always had the essentials. My parents made it a point to provide us with everything we needed; however, others are not so lucky and that is why I help.”
