Student Spotlight: Alexis Tavarez | Nourish International

November 18, 2014 | Posted in Uncategorized | By

Alexis Tavarez, Student Board Member, University of Florida


“To me, empowerment is what makes Nourish International a movement and inspires me. It focuses on inspiring people to make big changes on their campuses, in their communities, and in the world. However, what makes Nourish truly unique is that it focuses on capacity building and giving people the resources to better themselves as individuals which collectively can change the world. As a student, being a part of the Nourish movement has prepared me to be a passionate, and globally aware leader prepared to take on the world’s big challenges. I am the leader I am today because of the potential the people at Nourish International saw, and fostered within me.

At the University of Florida we are working diligently to make sustainable change in Indian communities. Currently, we are working on earning funds and training leaders to apply the Nourish values to our project. Our focus is on empowering audacious leaders who are equally prepared to educate, and learn from the communities they will be serving.”
