KYLIE PALACIOS
SOCIAL MEDIA DIRECTOR

From an early age, Kylie’s parents regularly took her to a local food kitchen where they served warm meals to homeless people. Over time she began to recognize certain friendly faces and learned their stories. She treasured the time she spent there, and it engendered a love for serving others. From rural New Hampshire, where she studied at Dartmouth College, to her home town in urban Southern California, she could not ignore the needs of the impoverished communities around her. As opportunities arose, she even travelled to Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, the French Alps, Guatemala, and Honduras to serve God and others. She is currently studying anthropology and is learning cultural sensitivity as it relates to development work.

She began using social media to promote non-profit work when she became the ambassador for the National Haitian Amputee Soccer Team during their visit in the summer of 2017. She worked as a photographer for the team, posting pictures so people in America and Haiti could see the inspiring journey of the team. She also runs the social media pages for her church. After working as an intern with Global Pearls in Guatemala, she was excited to join the Global Pearls team and help publicize the organization!
