Our founders Alexis De La Rosa and Lauren Footman, became friends while undergraduate students at Bryn Mawr College. Since then, the pair have continued their friendship, and have worked on various projects together including starting a mentoring program for Black and Latinx undergraduate students at Bryn Mawr, called SCOPE: Students Committed to Opportunities, Progress and Empowerment. SCOPE’s objective is to supplement existing College initiatives to aid in minority student retention and success.

Alexis is a native of Claremont, California, and graduated from Bryn Mawr with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and concentration in Latin American, Iberian and Latinx Studies. She earned her Master’s in Higher Education from the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, and currently works as a Development Associate for a non-profit organization in Philadelphia.

Lauren is a native of Yeadon , Pennsylvania graduating from Bryn Mawr, with a bachelor’s degree in English, and double minors in Political Science and Africana Studies. She is currently working toward her Master’s in Organizational Dynamics, with a concentration in Executive Coaching and Consulting at the University of Pennsylvania and is expanding her consulting and coaching firm.

No matter where life leads them, the two still connect and share stories over dinner, with their drink of choice, that’s normally determined by the topic of conversation.
