Sesame Street in Communities

Lee Yurista, Office Manager

“No one is ever surprised when I tell them that I work for Sesame Street (and previously) for HOP, an Israeli Children TV Network).  It’s probably because I still have that child within me, or perhaps I never lost interest in playing or hearing a good story.  Every day I find myself honored to work for an organization whose mission is to reach children (big and small), in different areas and countries, and truly make a difference in their lives.  I am grateful to be a part of an amazing team at the US Social Impact Department.  I don’t go to work, I buzz through jam-packed days, juggle a billion tasks, and help to make that one-of-a kind magic last another day.  When I get home, I have a chance to relive my childhood and share my work with my three amazing kids by watching Sesame Street.  So now when people ask what I do, I just say that I help kids grow Smarter, Kinder, and Stronger.”
