What do you love about the Summit-University neighborhood? I have lived in the Summit-University Community for over 25 years. I love living in a diverse community where many cultural customs are practiced and shared. I also like having the opportunity to know and learn from people from different cultures. Our neighborhood has become a melting pot where many different cultures live and work together.
How have you been involved in community service in the past? I believe that everyone has a responsibility to provide some form of assistance within their community. I have been an Associate Minister for over 20 years, and I have worked with the prison ministries, offenders work readiness programs, and community reclamation programs. I have been a trainer helping youth regain their lives and worked with parents to regain their children. I have worked with numerous nonprofit organizations like; Stairstep Foundation, International Leadership Institute, Union Gospel Mission, UpWorks, Together Friends and co-founder of Dove Ministries, a family oriented wholistic mentoring program. I am running for the Summit University Planning Council Board to ensure that our community becomes recognized as a key component of this city. This area is rich in cultural diversity and can become world renowned both culturally and economically. We need to continue to be at the forefront of development and change. I love the diversity and the multicultural atmosphere that enriches this community right in the middle of a major metropolitan city.
