How would you describe All Peoples Community Center?: I would describe All Peoples Community Center as a place where people can go to and feel safe. It’s also, a place where people feel at home. It’s a great place for building life skills, meeting new people and walking away with useful resources that will help you in life.

Favorite Part of Your Job: My favorite part about my job is bonding, helping and empowering the youth.


My Best All Peoples Story:  While working at Dunbar Village one day one of the students came to me upset because his teacher had given him a bad grade on his book report. We worked on it together and the following day he came back extremely happy and with a sticker his teacher gave him for doing such a great job on his book report. Although, I know this is my job to help the youth, it always feels rewarding to know that even the smallest act of helpfulness makes someone else’s day.

Hobbies: writing, meditating, watching shows and decorating


Fun Fact About Me/Hidden Talent:  My olfactory receptors are more than those of the average person.

Me in 3 Words: Compassionate, Loyal and Creative
