Allie Gates, Ventures Director and Project Team Member, UCLA 2010
Allie’s favorite part about Nourish: “The freedom to experiment and think outside the box! Nourish does not impose a one-size-fits-all approach to individual chapters, and it allows students to really develop ventures that cater to the particular environment on campus and in their city. In the same vein, the projects we execute are truly collaborations between chapters and partner organizations, which allows for growth on both ends.” Learn more about her experience with Nourish here.
