The basics

Skye (Shukria) joined the UpStart team because she deeply values organizations that better the community in which she lives. She is a Southern California native with a BA in Molecular Biology from the University of Colorado Boulder. After graduating, she lived and worked in East Asia for two years teaching English and experiencing diverse cultures. Upon returning, Skye found the mission and ideals of UpStart closely aligned with her own passions of promoting and encouraging inclusive communities.
