Not a Goodbye, but a Thank You!

A message from Annabella Cobos, previous Marketing & Communications Intern at Pass the Torch for Women Foundation

While my time spent as the Marketing & Communications Intern may have come to an end, this blog is not me saying goodbye to the Foundation. This blog is my tribute to the Foundation and all the memories, lessons, connections, and growth I have made and experienced due to my time spent working for such a meaningful cause and with such an empowering community. 

May 7th marks the date of my graduation from the Lacy School of Business at Butler University. It is a bittersweet moment. The past four years seem to have flown by and while I have known this moment was inevitable, I still can’t believe it’s here. It’s important for me to note that the Foundation played an integral role in my personal and professional development.

I started my role with the Foundation halfway into my junior year of college. The last 16+ months at the Foundation, I have learned so much, gained meaningful friendships, advocated for positive change, and worked to empower others. While it was not always easy and I was balancing school, internships, and wedding planning, (yes – I am getting married in October of 2022!) I am so proud of myself that I did it!

After graduation, I will begin work in June at Ryan Fireprotection as their Marketing Coordinator as part of the Orr Fellowship! I am so eager and excited for all that’s to come in this next chapter of my life.

I love the Foundation and I am so grateful for the time I spent here. It helped shape me into the person I am, and I’m just so grateful that I decided to apply to the position back in January of 2021. I plan on continuing to be a part of the Foundation and am excited to later see what that may look like. I encourage everyone to look into the Foundation and its communities. There is a home for everyone, and I couldn’t recommend being a part of this community more.  

I want to leave you all with the message that I continuously told myself throughout these past four years. These seven words have carried me through some of my toughest moments both personally and professionally and I believe that these words can help you too because after all,  if you believe you can, you will.
