Dear Volunteer Coordination Professionals,

I am writing to apply for the Community and Youth Development Volunteer

Position in Albania that is posted on your website. Currently I am an
undergraduate student at Arizona State University pursing a Bachelor of Arts
in Religious Studies as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies with a
Greek emphasis. Upon graduation, my management experience, language
skills, and cultural diversity involvement will make me an excellent candidate
for the position.

Currently, I am both a full-time student and an office manager for a local

small business. I was instrumental in moving the business from New Mexico
to Arizona and can adapt well to new laws, can easily adjust to difficult
situations, and understand the value in investing in ones community. I enjoy
rolling up my sleeves and working as hard as necessary to achieve my goals.
Additionally, I have been involved in numerous missionary outreaches,
church planting organizations, and have volunteered in my respective
community for the past decade, primarily serving the youth. I believe that
investing in children, both socially and intellectually is an absolute necessity
that cannot be overlooked. Finally, I have studied several dialects of Ancient
Greek for the past four years and can not only learn multiple languages but
can navigate the challenging nuances that different dialects can provide
within those languages.

My previous missionary activities as well as current community involvement

show my firm belief in the importance of community development and my
ability to integrate cross-culturally.
Additionally, my ability to learn complex and unusual languages makes me
an asset to your organization. I am confident that you will find that my career
skills and experience, community involvement, and academic achievements
make me an excellent candidate for the position. Here is a link to my
professional portfolio: I will be available to
meet with you at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your time and
consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.
