How would you describe All Peoples Community Center: All Peoples Community Center is fantastic and very helpful towards the community. It’s an organization that does the impossible to take care of the neighborhood. Despite the fact that sometimes our resources are limited, we provide a lot and useful information for those specific services that the clients are looking for.

 

Favorite Part of Your Job: I get to give back to the community. I enjoy doing so and helping our clients as much as possible. It is extremely rewarding to help others.

My best All Peoples story: It is very difficult to answer this question because I have many best All Peoples stories, but one that stood out the most was when I got hired. All my years after high school I was working hardcore labor for the minimum wage with absolutely no raise. I was working non-stop with no resting, and yet, I couldn’t afford anything but the rent and my daughter’s needs. I tried school but that wasn’t working either. I was ready to give up in life but before I did, I tried applying to All Peoples Community Center since I wanted give back before I gave up in life. The Lord heard my prayers, and APCC gave me an opportunity that no other company did. Thank You All Peoples for giving me a chance in life and changing it for the better.­­­­­

 

Hobbies: Spending time with my family, playing sports, playing video games, and art.

Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent: Drawing skills, I made a short film at one of the famous Universal Studios Hollywood backlots. I love comics, watched almost every movie in the world, and striving to become a film director.

 

 

Me in 3 Words: Hard Worker, Charismatic, Determined

We’re so happy that David is part of our All Peoples Family!
