Starting in January 2023, the Georgia First Generation Foundation welcomed Nick Fernandez as the new marketing director. Nick is a born-and-raised Georgia resident, scholar, and business owner. After graduating from Berry College of Rome, GA, he pursued his MBA at American University while working full-time and growing his own digital marketing agency, Upsway Marketing. An agency focused on providing startups and small businesses with cost-effective website development, social media management, and graphic design.
Below is a snippet from an interview with Nick Fernandez,
Shortly after moving to Buford, Georgia, I met Charbel Aoun and instantly saw a motivated scholar, non-profit founder, member of countless boards, and ultimately a strong community leader. The old saying, "Surround yourself with people smarter than you" came true the day I met him. I'm beyond honored to volunteer myself for this position, help the foundation grow digitally, and be surrounded by a fantastic team.
We're thrilled to have him on the team!
