NIB recently spoke with Daron Sharps, a current Fellow placed on the Board of the East Boston Ecumenical Community Council (EBECC):
Net Impact Boston: How long, and in what way, have you been involved in Net Impact?
Daron: I founded the Net Impact Undergrad chapter at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2008. When I graduated and moved to Boston in 2010, I joined Net Impact Board Fellows to get more involved and give back to the city I already loved!
Net Impact Boston: What’s your current job?
Daron: Upon graduation I received an AmeriCorps Residency In Social Enterprise with the New Sector Alliance, during which I worked at Initiative for a Competitive Inner City. Later this month, I will be starting a job with FSG Social Impact Advisors, as a Research Associate.
Net Impact Boston: What organization have you been placed with and what will you be doing for them?
Daron: I serve on the board of the East Boston Ecumenical Community Council (EBECC), designing and implementing a social media strategy to engage the Latino/a clientele of the organization.
Net Impact Boston: What three things are on your “bucket list”?
Daron: Three of my craziest “bucket list” items are to own my own pottery studio, climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, and be a part of, or found, a secret society
