How were you engaged with ARC? Not just the seminar/internship/fellowship but describe the type of project.
I worked with Brittini Gray on an educational project that would allow low-income youth in Bloomington-Normal go to college. We designed and coordinated a college tour.
Where are you now?
I am working for United Way of Metro Chicago raising money for communities of greatest need.
Where did ARC take you professionally? Are you doing work that connects back to ARC in some way?
ARC challenged me to always think about what the assets are in the community and build on it. I use what I learned in my work today.
Where did ARC take you personally? Are you engaged in community work that is ARC-like?
Yes. I am continuously involved with community projects.
Share a great memory about ARC/IWU.
ARC provided me my first opportunity to manage others and a project on the college level that had a direct impact on the community through Life is a blank canvas grant.
