Becoming a Fellow is the best thing I ever did!
January 29, 2014
When I was in college I had planned to go into journalism like my parents, but then I had this opportunity to get involved in my community through a fellowship on a political campaign in 2008 just a few hours a week.
What started out as an internship quickly became a career change. I haven’t looked back. I saw firsthand how working neighbor to neighbor, we can make a huge difference in people’s lives. That’s why I love the work I do here at Get Covered America as an Organizer in Tucson. We are changing people’s lives for the better.
Here in Arizona there are over a million of our neighbors who lack affordable health coverage, but the Health Insurance Marketplace changes all that. Not only are there new options, but most of these folks can qualify for some type of financial help to bring the cost of their monthly premium down. Also, there is free, professional help available to find the right plan for their family. Our challenge is this: not enough people know about it, but that’s where you come in!
Being a Fellow changed my life, but you don’t need to want a career change to take advantage of this opportunity. Our Fellows are making a huge impact in communities across the state by holding events with volunteers to inform consumers about the marketplace, connecting folks without insurance to free professional help, and spreading the word through friends and family.
We all know someone who lacks insurance, and this Fellowship is a great way to help all of our neighbors get the information they need to get covered.
