1. How long have you worked for PNLV and what do you do there?
It’s been just over a month now.
2. What is the most challenging thing about setting up a brand new Promise Neighborhood?
The most challenging part is getting familiarized with the PNLV mission and goals to be able to give the best to our program and for those residents that we serve in our neighborhood. I am still new to all this but am willing to learn as much as I can as fast as possible.
3. How do you think the new Easton Promise Neighborhood will help West Ward residents?
I think that it will help in a big way. Easton is a growing community and we will strive to reach out towards the neighborhood’s needs per our mission and as part of our goals. They need us and we are here for them to help them improve, grow and be successful in our community. That is an important part for their own quality of life and we need to make them feel important in our community.
4. What’s your favorite part of the work you do for PNLV?
Helping children and families in our neighborhood. I am a teacher and as a teacher I always loved this part of helping others to succeed and to find their way out in a way they can progress in life. Specially getting children ready to enter school and stay in school thereafter, and give some strategies to parents to join their children in school activities and other activities that will motivate their children to be successful and part of community. And PNLV is striving for that part and I am here to join their goals.
