Professional growth and the true meaning of empowerment and belonging: Bilingual Senior Communications & Development Manager Ana Lopez shares her story
Hello everyone, my name is Ana Lucia Lopez, and it's a pleasure to share a little bit of my journey with you.
I'm originally from Colombia and have been living in the U.S. for 8 years. Back in my college days at Bunker Hill Community College, I was studying Visual Design, and eager to find an internship that would not only help me grow my skills but also contribute to my professional growth.
My journey with All In Energy began in 2020, at a time when I felt like I was riding a roller coaster. We were navigating through the challenges of a global pandemic, I was far away from my family, and in a political environment that created doubts about my immigration status.
So all of those things combined weighed me down, a sentiment very familiar to many immigrants. There's a constant struggle with feeling undervalued when English isn't your first language and you weren't born here.
All In Energy turned 5 this year! Here's a quick recap of the organization's progress and accomplishments throughout those years
As many of you know, All In Energy turned five years old this year! As this year comes to a close, I’ve been thinking about what we’ve accomplished in our first five years as an organization. I wanted to share a quick recap of the tremendous growth we’ve had since we started in spring 2018 and share some of what is so exciting about where we are today.
Thinking back a little over 5 years ago, Gabe and I didn’t even know each other! We were introduced by a professor at BU and, after a 2 hour conversation over coffee, Gabe invited me to join him in launching a new nonprofit All In Energy with a mission to accelerate an inclusive clean energy economy. The vision was to bring energy efficiency and renewable energy programs to underserved communities and to leverage this work to create first-time career-launching clean energy jobs for diverse candidates. Looking back, I hardly knew this guy, but I took the biggest risk of my career and said yes. Boy am I glad I did.
