Hi I’m Sorelle Ngatchou
A Cameroonian native and a legally adopted child of the United States. Coming from a low socio-economic background and an underrepresented community, I constantly wrestle with putting an end to generational poverty.
This quest has informed my course choices, conversation topics, and research I have conducted. One area of research I have conducted focused on how to use Albert Bandura’s role model theory and Carol Dweck’s growth mindset theory to produce ethnically-matched role models to increase the success rate of low-income and underrepresented communities of color.
I have a bachelor’s degree in communication and an associate degree in general studies. Having served and worked in a kitchen, gas station, and as a board member of a movement and non-profit organization, I have learned the values of love, humility, respect, decision making, money management, timing, and teamwork. Professionally, I work as a Communication and Administration Associate for the Intentional Endowment Network (IEN) where I offer strategic communication services and perform administrative tasks to enable smooth and effective execution of IEN’s mission.
I believe I was born to instill hope and strengthen people around me. I have learned to smile when I am sad, to love, and give although sometimes I get exhausted. I see myself as an inspiration to others and “what does not kill me makes me stronger.”
Now, I believe the time has come for me to share the knowledge I have acquired, learn from your experience so together we can make a difference in our community. I hereby welcome you to my blog, and encourage you to join my motivational discussions on social issues, life coaching and be INSPIRED to BE the model you wish to see around you.
