United Way of Western Connecticut is pleased to announce this month’s Hometown Hero! Meet Tiffani Valentin, a local leader from Stamford, Connecticut who has been nominated for her work with LiveGirl.
Tiffani is being recognized for her passion and commitment. During her time as a volunteer and mentor, she has gone above and beyond while building connections that make a positive impact on the lives of young women.
LiveGirl is a non-profit that works to prepare the next generation of female trailblazers with skills and connections; giving them the confidence they need to become leaders. Her work at this local organization directly aligns with United Way of Western Connecticut’s mission to make quality education affordable and accessible. Tiffani actively helps her mentees find jobs. She’s been known to help them prepare for interviews, write resumes, and even online shop for work-appropriate attire.
Alison Waller, a colleague, and previous Hometown Hero nominated Tiffani and recognizes her impact saying “Tiffani has been an amazing mentor to quite a few of our girls. Outside of meeting with students [one on one] each week, Tiffani volunteers at our events. She shows up no matter the day or time to inspire our girls.”
Congratulations, Tiffani! The positive impact you’ve created within your community is what makes you a Hometown Hero.
