Ali is our fearless Thrive Intern. She is currently an 11th Grade student at Manson High School and has served as our student intern since October 2019 as part of Manson’s Internship Program. When the COVID crisis hit our state, Ali stepped up and asked how she could get involved to support her peers. From packing bags of food to serving at the Manson Food2Schools site, Ali excitedly accepts every opportunity to help and give back to her community.
Here is what Thrive Board Member, Addie Grageda, had to say about Ali: “Being a busy high school student, Ali has many other things she could choose to do with her time, but she shows up when Thrive needs her most! She is caring, compassionate and kind. Her willingness to help others is inspiring. I love volunteering with her and I’m very proud of the young woman she has become.”
