Volunteer Spotlight: Eugenia Gomez uses her PennPAC experience to bolster a career transition

Eugenia Gomez’s appreciation for the importance of service began at a young age. Her father runs the US chapter of a Colombian based nonprofit, Children of the Andes.  She began collecting school supplies and running clothing drives for the nonprofit when she was still in high school. A 2012 Penn Huntsman Program graduate (earning a BS in Econ and BA in International Studies), Eugenia is now in a career transition bolstered by her PennPAC volunteer leadership role as Team Leader for the Concilio project in Philadelphia. As the next step of her transition, she will study marketing research and consumer behavior in a one-year program in Madrid this fall.  Read Eugenia’s full story!
