Personal Statement

The705 has helped me grow personally and professionally while becoming more aware of the needs in our area. The 705 Board of Directors is a unique avenue to reach the young professionals of Acadiana. I would like to reach people in our community that want to be involved but are not sure where their skills set would be beneficial or where to start. The 705 helps bridge the gap of those wanting to “do something” to become involved while addressing civic responsibility with community engagement while having a good time!
