National Leadership Program, Spring 2018
Juliet Arcila Rojas was a Nonprofit Management Apprentice in the National Leadership Program at RespectAbility. She is a graduate from The Catholic University of America with a degree in Sociology. She planned on going to graduate school for Public Health.
Arcila Rojas is interested in working in either the private or public sector to ensure that all populations are fairly represented. She feels a sense of responsibility to ensure that people are treated fairly, with mutual respect and dignity.
At RespectAbility, Arcila Rojas researched foundations with missions that match RespectAbility’s mission to fight stigmas and advance opportunities for people with disabilities. She took part in collecting data that helps to advance RespectAbility’s mission. She attended conferences that look at issues of disability such as job opportunities, and has met with various leaders in the disability community. She also assisted in writing letters of inquiry to potential funders.
In her free time, Arcila Rojas practices photography and daydreams about owning a dog. She likes to talk with people who are more experienced in life than she is. She understands that there is a lot of wisdom to be learned from others.
