Marketing & Development Coordinator 

Ah’Lizah Nelson is a current AmeriCorps VISTA member. She is serving at the “I Have A Dream” Foundation- Los Angeles (IHADLA) as the Marketing and Development Coordinator in the executive office.

Ms. Nelson is an LA native and recently graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in June 2022. Following graduation, she traveled overseas to participate in a diplomacy fellowship where she worked as a Community Support Specialist at a refugee counseling center in Heidelberg, Germany. 

The experience of traveling abroad ignited her desire to be more intentional about how she shows up in the world and is grateful to now be working with an organization that positively impacts a community she used to be a part of. She is ecstatic to have the opportunity to work at IHADLA alongside such a dedicated group of women. Ah’lizah is inspired by the devotion of the staff and coordinators who empower and uplift the Dreamer Scholars.
