Hello! My name is Tomas Kurtz and I am very excited for the opportunity to intern at Becky’s Fund this fall. I graduated from VCU in May 2017 and majored in Business with a concentration in Marketing. I am originally from Arlington, VA and since graduating from college, have moved back to the area. In my free time I like seeing live music and spending time outside playing sports or going on riding my bike around local trails.
I am interested in joining Becky’s Fund this fall for many reasons. To start, I have general interest in the non-profit sector. During my time at VCU I volunteered with several different organizations in Richmond. Also, one of my favorite classes was Nonprofit Marketing, where I was able to work with a local organization for a semester. These insights and experiences further sparked my interest in non-profits and my desire to pursue non-profit work as a career.
I am inspired by the resource that Becky’s Fund provides the community. I hope to use my Marketing degree for public service and assist people who may be in negative situations. After becoming aware of Becky’s Fund, I applied in hopes to be part of real change and have the opportunity to positively impact people’s lives. I am also excited to learn more about the non-profit sector and further my marketing and communication skills as they relate to this industry. Finally, I am looking forward to learn how to effectively combat domestic violence and provide resources to people who may be subject to these prominent issues.
