Kerry Quakenbush | Board Liaison, AIDS Project Los Angeles | Los Angeles, CA
There was a time when I worked in an industry of greed. A place where people strove to get more and more while overlooking friendships and people who were less fortunate. I started a whole new way of thinking when I began focusing on homeless people, sick people and people suffering under the terrible effects of substance abuse. I realized that I had no way of knowing how people got into the situations that they were in, but it wasn't my place to judge. There are those who get really hungry. Some get really troubled and have bad times. And some people get really sick. I work daily to try and give people who are in need a better standard of living. It takes so little to make someone smile and feel a little better.
