Tell us why you’re best for the Structure and Operations committee!

Very detailed person

 

Tell us why you’re best for the Special Projects committee!

I am a good leader because I like to engage the team which allows for collaborative efforts.

 

Why are you interested in serving on a Connect 313 Committee? What do you hope to gain from the experience? 

I would like to be involved in a project that will benefit the people of Detroit.

 

What is your vision for bridging the digital divide in Detroit?

In my opinion the long and short of it is that all people regardless of social status should have access to modern information and communication technology. When a person has good information he or she can then make better choices to improve and achieve their life goals.

 

Please share your current community activities and/or volunteer work.

I am the chairperson for a urban gardening project for Camp Restore Detroit.org on the eastside of Detroit. I also have volunteered at St John Community Center Homeless Shelter for more than 25 years as a bookkeeper.
