Q&A with Vanesa

Q&A with Vanesa Zuleta Goldberg, Digital Content Specialist

Where are you based?

I currently live in El Paso TX, but I am making the move in August with my family to Albany, NY!

How long have you worked for NFYCM?

For almost 4 amazing months!

Outside of work, what do you like to do?

My husband and I love to go hiking up in the mountains with our two dogs, Bandit and Koda. We love being outside and connecting with the beauty of nature!

What is something about you that most folks might not know?

I am currently in an internship with the Dicastery of Communications for the Vatican! I am part of a cohort of 16 young adults from around the world, and we connect weekly to learn and create new avenues in engaging our faith from a digital world. I got to personally met Pope Francis with them in Rome this past June!

What do you do at NFYCM?

I help manage, facilitate, and create digital campaigns and entry points that allow us to continue to share the message of NFYCM with all people. I manage website edits and updates, and help with the development of our events from a social media and marketing perspective. 

What is the best part about your job – why do you do what you do?

Our team. I love working with our incredibly creative and empowering team members here at NFCYM. I love being able to enter into conversations with them and all our incredible members from across the country to talk more about how we can share the Gospel with young people from different entry points and in diverse ways.
