My involvement with Festa Italiana is an immensely rewarding experience. As a non-Italian who loves Italian culture, participation in this organization is teaching me a lot about Italy plus has helped me to meet many of her sons and daughters who live in Portland and beyond, as well as develop my own leadership skills. When I first started with Festa back in 2005, I was welcome with open arms. I am very proud to serve on the board of an organization whose mission involves putting on a cultural celebration every year, to make the culture more accessible to the greater community, through personal engagement and education.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
