I think we all have little dreams. Goals that we keep to ourselves that maybe we put on the back burner because we don’t think opportunities will ever come knocking.

My whole life, I’ve loved giving back and helping others. My heart had always had this little dream of finding ways to make a bigger impact. But sometimes it feels impossible to even know where to start.

So when the opportunity to head an outreach program at government contracting company came around, it seemed like this little gift. The building blocks to start to build an impact.

Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to witness people come together and make such a dynamic impact through a wide array of initiatives and programs that have the ability to make such an impact to people from all walks of lives. We’ve raised funds, created collection drives, organized free resources to people to have the tools and building blocks to live a full life.

Back in college, I discovered my Role Model, MM. Friends always joke or roll their eyes when I say she’s my role mode, but this gal has made an impact on my life in the best way. She inspired me to believe in myself, give more than you take and live life fully by living it with authenticity and inspiration. I feel like that part of myself has come alive again.

Yesterday, I arrived in Alaska where are going to travel to local villages to meet with kids who don’t have the tools they need to thrive. This has helped me realize that those little dreams we have in our hearts, might not make sense to others and they might seem unobtainable, but keep believing. Trust that even when the smallest opportunity comes along, you will be able to turn into something amazing. Not for yourself, but for those who need a helping hand. Thanks for the inspiration, Meg. ❤️#believeinyourself #thetig #meghanmarkle #inspiration #dream #believe #rolemodel #sussexsquad #compassioninaction #giveback #yulistacares

This is one of my favorite photos from yesterday. Silly faces and big smiles.

8 employees from yulistaholdingllc and calistacorp traveled to Hooper Bay and Chevak to pass out school supplies and love on almost 900 amazing kiddos in the villages.

There will be more from the trip coming soon, but I can’t begin to explain how full my heart is. The #yulistacares 2022 Backpack Campaign has been a huge success! Thankful for all who helped to knock it out of the park… #giveback #travel #adventure #explore #outreach #hooperbay #chevak #alaska

Over the weekend, #YulistaCARES took a stand against Alzheimer's at the North Alabama: Walk to End Alzheimer’s event. It was a beautiful day for the community to raise donations and awareness of this growing epidemic that not only impacts those diagnosed but their families and friends as well. Many of our Yulista team members and families are directly impacted by this disease and we want them to know we are in this fight with you.

Yulista is a forever company. We are connected to our past and committed to a future of enduring prosperity and inspiration for our Alaskan Native Shareholders. We draw inspiration from our Alaskan roots every day.

To celebrate #AlaskaDay, we are excited to share a special video recapping our recent #YulistaCARES trip to Alaska. With the help of our parent company, Calista Corporation, #TeamYulista, and our local communities, we were able to hand deliver 900 backpacks and beanies to students in the rural villages of Hooper Bay & Chevak. Our delivery team got to experience the beautiful tundra and meet the families, students, and teachers of our larger Shareholder family.

Alaska holds a special place in our heart and its beauty shines through its landscape, culture, but most importantly its people. A link to the full video is in our bio.
