Meet Stacie Tharp, our New PR & Events Intern
Written by Plant With Purpose on February 17, 2011 in General
Hello Plant With Purpose supporters and friends! My name is Stacie Tharp and I am the new Public Relations and Events Intern. I am in my final semester studying public relations at SDSU, I am a native San Diegan, and, as my Twitter profile account will tell you, the things I am most passionate about in life are Jesus, people, and sports. (Although I do love a great cup of coffee and hiking as well!)
I originally came to learn about Plant With Purpose through Flood Church’s website while researching potential missions work opportunities for the future. My heart for the poor really grew this past summer as I went on a six-week missions trip to the Philippines. There, I had the opportunity to live with 12 beautiful Filipino girls in a Manila slum. My desire to see justice for the rural poor grew as I was able to see and experience first-hand the devastation that is created when people no longer have the opportunity to provide for themselves on their own land.
I am incredibly excited to be working with Plant With Purpose and look forward to the experience I will gain in both my educational field and missions work abroad.
