Kelly Doyle, a student at the University of Denver, is spending the summer researching new funding opportunities for the RVF. Kelly is a native of Chicago and has spent summers volunteering at an orphanage in Honduras. She is fluent in Spanish and, after graduation, plans to work with non-profits in Central and South America.
In Honduras, Kelly volunteered in a variety of positions to assist with the home’s daily operations. This included cooking for the orphanage’s children and staff, harvesting vegetables in the garden, and helping in the Montessori classrooms. In her free time at the orphanage, she enjoyed having dance parties with the special needs girls. From her experiences in Honduras, Kelly says she has learned that it is important to show up for others in whatever way you are able to. Kelly is majoring in international relations, with concentrations in human rights and security, as well as human health and development. Fun fact: Kelly knows everything there is to know about hockey, though she does not actually play the sport herself.
I am excited to work for the Rosa Vera Fund because I believe that every child has the potential to grow up to do something amazing, and a reconcilable health condition should not prevent that from happening. I love that the Rosa Vera Fund is able to help every one of their patients achieve a healthier future.
