Hello, my name is Tuanette Nixon and I am the Fundraising Chair of The Hedrick Project. I source funds to make the project’s dreams a reality.
Growing up in South Africa among a beautifully diverse population and environment full of rich culture, I saw firsthand the many ways people of all different backgrounds shared life and its challenges. The ecosystem of South Africa left an impression on me that shaped my worldview and led to a passion for helping others, creating awareness for both human and environmental issues, and the drive to live each day with the goal of working for a betterment of our planet in all ways possible.
After moving from South Africa to England and, ultimately, the United States, I have amassed both a fuller understanding of the world’s unanswered needs, but also a deep and fulsome background in networking through my positions helping numerous nonprofit organizations working in a multitude of capacities. The Hedrick Project is a natural and exciting fit for me and I look very forward to continuing to make a difference as part of their team.
