Nominated by Jose Reyes
March 08, 2017
Jhoanny started traveling to Haiti and South Africa on mission trips to serve orphanages and bring them resources and supplies. It all started with Back to School mission in Haiti and than the Food Bank creation in Johannesburg. She than participated in medical brigades and public health brigades in Honduras and Panama! She travelled to Ghana for 3 weeks to build a solar energy business with a group of volunteers and she trained three women to run that business as well as she educated a whole village, more than 80 households about solar energy and clean water. She is serving as an AmeriCorps member at the American Red Cross where she responds to fires daily, educates households about fire safety and CO safety and presents at schools to more than 750 youth about natural disasters such as Hurricane preparedness. I admire her willingness and action to ending poverty. She also now is appointed as Next Generation Ambassador to Diakonos International and Youth Representative to the United Nations with Airline Ambassadors International. Both organizations are the ones that she travels with to serve children.
