Greetings! My name is Efrain Diaz, and I will be serving as Fundraising Intern for spring 2010. Upon entering Thunderbird as a Master’s candidate in Global Affairs and Management in the fall of 2009, I became acquainted with the Tia Foundation and was immediately impressed by their efforts to create sustainable health strategies in rural Mexico. I was especially moved by their work in my family’s hometown of Guadalajara. I am greatly looking forward to this new experience and hope to contribute to the success of the organization!
