This morning we are thrilled to introduce you to our newest team member, Bryncia Milam. Bryncia joined the team as our Development Coordinator at the beginning of August.
I’m not sure that I can't articulate how excited I am to join the CARE for AIDS team, but I’ll certainly try! I am humbled that God would invite me into the great work He’s doing through this organization.
I am a proud Atlanta native- I grew up a few miles south of the city in a large family where my love for art, music, and good southern cooking emerged. At a young age, my family instilled the value of hard work, serving others and what it meant to truly "love our neighbors as ourselves”. I still vividly remember my aunt politely forcing us to spend our weekends serving the elderly in our community. We were always reminded to do our best to love others despite their social or economic status. Later in life would I realize how these experiences would shape my ever-growing passion for service.
After High School I felt the Lord compelling me into a very specific calling; to serve at-risk and marginalized populations. Afterall, my own personal life story reflected many similarities to those I was called to serve. My life is a testament to God’s transformative grace and how He could completely change the trajectory of a life. I eventually went on to complete my Bachelor's Degree as a non-traditional student at Agnes Scott College. I served in a variety of organizations throughout Atlanta and even had a unique opportunity to serve in Seoul, South Korea as a part of an International Studies course.
A great part of my journey was the last 4.5 years, serving as the Volunteer Services Program Coordinator for Wellspring Living in Atlanta, GA. Seeing so many young girls and women who were once hopeless find hope again is indescribable. My work with Wellspring solidified my calling to inspire and engage other servant leaders to be change agents in the world. What a blessing! Who knew God would allow me to continue on this journey as He led me to CFA?!
I have been inspired to serve at a greater level- personally, spiritually and professionally. The CARE For AIDS current and future vision for global impact is phenomenal. I’m honored to be a part of this work. I can only hope to make a small imprint in the story and continue to see lives changed!
