ATG Against The Grain Productions has not only given me a chance to use my skills, but to apply those skills for a greater purpose. I first took part in this organization during my senior year in college, when I was voted onto the Board as a Director of Marketing and Public Relations. I've held the position of Secretary for two years now. It is truly an honor to join a group of hardworking leaders and professionals. We have the mission to raise money for orphanages and scholarships for students, while showcasing the talents of artists and engaging the community in cultural awareness. I have matured very much in the three years serving as a board member. I grew as the organization grew. We have humble beginnings of the founder's vision, whose passion drew in a group of friends and community leaders onto a Board of Directors. Now it's expanded into a highly regarded nonprofit with a Board of Directors and Creative Team. We also have generous support from respectable sponsors and community partners. And to think it's completely grassroots with people brought together by passion, as no one on the ATG team is paid. All this growth has me looking forward to the future as we are persistently integrate generous support and innovative strategy to further our mission.
