Frater Arredondo participates in Jopwell Shoot
Frater Oscar Arredondo, a student at Indiana University and a Leadership Academy graduate, recently participated in a photoshoot, by online recruiting platform Jopwell. The photoshoot was part of an initiative Jopwell has launched to increase the visibility of the minority community in daily business stock photos. The photos are available free for anyone to use. The photo-shoot Frater Arredondo was a part of is a special edition with students in college. Speaking of the opportunity, Frater Arredondo said, “It was a great experience for me to be able to connect with students from all around the country as well.”

In a release about the project, Jopwell stated:
“We’d enlisted this group to help expand The Jopwell Collection, the stock photography campaign we launched in April to increase the visibility of our community of Black, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American students and professionals in the workplace.
Photographed by Cornell University student Kelechi Mpamaugo, the resulting images aim to capture and celebrate the experiences of these interns (who, by the way, we are quite sure will be pictured leading actual boardrooms in the near future).”
Following the shoot, Jopwell nominated Frater Arredondo to attend the Forbes Under 30 Summit as an Under 30 Scholar. Forbes partnered with Jopwell and asking them to nominate students from their community who would be a good attendee for the event. Frater Arredondo said of the experience, “I'm very grateful to be active with Jopwell and the opportunities that have arisen through it. I had an incredible experience at Forbes hearing from some of the most amazing people from all around the world and expanding my network at the same time.”
