Amy Gracia

Fundraising and Communications Director

Amy joined the Arise team in January 2019. As a Dodgers fan, she first heard about Arise Africa through Kershaw’s Challenge and soon began her involvement through Child Sponsorship. She has been on two mission trips with Arise where she met her sponsored child in 2017, and was hooked. After she was offered the position with Arise, Amy bought a one-way ticket to Texas.

Amy works closely with Alissa and Faith, and handles all media content. She is in charge of keeping supporters up to date through monthly newsletters, blog posts, and social media. Amy also works toward sharing the stories and giving a voice to the children we serve in Zambia.

Amy is from sunny Fontana, California. She has since moved to Fort Worth and is ready to explore the city. In her spare time, she enjoys outdoor adventures and watching Friends on repeat.
