It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Wendy Martinez, a brilliant young woman who inspired all of us. Wendy was an alumna of the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI), class of 2005. It is because of her that we have our alumni association, giving us a place to foster and collaboratively share ideas and opportunities.
Wendy worked at FiscalNote, where she encountered much success, including having her work recognized in Tech publications. She previously worked at the IDB and during her time there assisted CHLI to connect with leaders there to participate in the CHLI Trade & International Affairs Symposium. She was an entrepreneur, an active alumni member and always available to assist other interns. She graduated from University of Florida. She was recently engaged and was making plans for a bright, beautiful future. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Please help us achieve our goal for Wendy Martinez funeral expenses.
