My name is Ariana Coniglio and I am so excited to be a part of the JustWorld team! I am looking forward to working with such dedicated staff members and Ambassadors around the world who strive to make genuine change in the lives of those who are most vulnerable and need the most compassion.
I have dedicated my career to improving the health and wellbeing of youth. After earning my Masters in Public Health from Boston University, I began working with the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts, partnering with them to bring health education and prevention initiatives within the school system. I also have a passion working one-on-one with youth. I have worked in a number of after-school programs, focusing on at-risk populations, encouraging them to become leaders in their community through mentoring and education. I also coached middle school cross-country and high school track teams.
To me, there is no better reward than empowering youth to rise to create a brighter future for themselves, their family, and their community. I believe in the JustWorld model of effective change through basic education, nutrition, health, hygiene, and vocational programs for children. With this model of support, we create sustainable long-term change that breaks the cycle of poverty.
Together, I truly believe we can really make a difference and work towards a more “just” world. I am thankful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to get to work!
