Introducing Vox Culture's Fundraiser Coordinator Jessica Luong! Jessica is in charge of reaching out and building relationships with potential donors and (existing) clients who are interested in working with Vox.

I absolutely adore the outdoors, and on most weekends, you'll find me all around Houston at random parks and record stores. 

What attracted you to VOX?     

I was initially attracted to VOX because of their mission. I have always wanted to be part of a non-profit organization that seeks to promote diversity with information and art. The creative aspects of VOX really drew me into the organization because I'm a strong believer in free expression.  

What is your favorite ice cream?      

 My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip!  

If you can have any super power what would it be and why?                            

If I could have any super power, I would be a mind reader. It's incredibly intriguing and powerful to know and understand the thoughts of others.

What attracted you to VOX?     

One of my coworkers mentioned she volunteers with the Star of Hope to help teach young children with their studies. She described to me in detailed what she was doing. We see and hear about homeless people and struggling mothers and their children. Sometimes we forget what we have and how much we have until we hear about the less fortunate. After our conversation I was inspired to do the same. I realize that I can use my time to help where help is needed. I searched through the Internet for non-profit organizations that helps with serious issues within our community. I briefly read about Vox and I wanted to know more. During our first meeting I was very observant and impressed with the years behind each volunteer. Vox volunteers were and are committed. I was even more impressed when I found out Vox does not just focus on one area our issues in our community but all issues.  Vox educates all of us. We can learn and understand the issues in our community that many in our society ignore. I am willing to learn and no longer ignore these issues. Helping one person and making a difference is one step closer to my or our goals. 

What is your favorite ice cream?      

My favorite ice cream is English Toffee Crunch by Dreyers.

If you can have any super power what would it be and why?                            

If I had a super power it would be to have the ability to detect bad thoughts and intervene in a timely manner.  There are so many super powers I would like to have and not just one. I wish I could protect everyone from harm and teach all the bad people how to love and change them to become good people.  Knowing the person I am, I would like to care for everyone and every animal. I do not wish harm on anyone or animal. If we think of how many lives would be saved if we knew ahead of time and prevented any harm being done to innocent people and animals.  The ability to protect and save the lives of many people would bring peace and joy to all their loved ones.
