One time when I was still working for the restaurant, the restaurant owner lady told me that I am a hard worker but it’s not enough to succeed, I also need opportunity. And I think Upwardly Global gave me a lot of opportunities to find my success. But, she said opportunity only comes once, so I have to be prepared when it comes. Upwardly Global not only gave me the opportunity, but also made me ready for when it came.”

Friends of UpGlo,
Since we opened our doors in New York City less than two years ago, Upwardly Global has helped over Protected content and unemployed immigrant professionals move back into their career field at an average starting salary of more than $42,000 with benefits, helping their families, the economy, and enriching the immigrant tradition of our country.
This year, we want to help even more. Upwardly Global is launching its first capital campaign: Protected content of Change. We are aiming to raise $180,000 dollars in individual donations this year to help Protected content professionals make a Protected content difference in their lives.
But we need help to do it! Upwardly Global's Junior Board is kicking off our campaign with a fundraiser on May 29th, from 7pm-10pm, at the Soho Loft. Join me in this great space to meet successful alumni from our program, mingle with a special network of globally-minded professionals, and help us deliver the American dream to immigrant professionals in New York City.
