Shara serves as the Finance and Operations Associate on GC’s national team. She believes that elevating the voices of underserved populations is vital to a functioning democracy. In college, she worked as a student volunteer in nearby prisons, where she taught incarcerated individuals the basics of public speaking and advocacy. During the summer, she worked with a community organizing nonprofit to help familiarize Buffalo residents with political institutions to help them advocate for themselves in local government.
Shara completed her BS in Policy Analysis and Management at Cornell University, studying econometrics and policy analysis. She is excited to be able to combine her passions for community-based advocacy and spreadsheets in her role as the Finance and Operations Associate.
