Featured Stewards in the Community
My mom teaches elementary school, so I’ve always had a great respect for teachers and the importance of education. I’ve been lucky to be involved in Student U and Book Harvest – two non-profits in Durham, located just down the road from Clarkston. Book Harvest is a community book bank that engages families and communities to promote lifelong literacy and academic success for children. Student U is a college-access organization that creates a pipeline of services to support students from 6th grade on. I am grateful for this opportunity to witness and be a part of educational growth in children across all ages in Durham.
Over the years I’ve cultivated a passion for international experiences and exploring new cultures and communities; I’m equally passionate about building bridges, promoting equity and providing opportunities. I, along with my co-founders, founded the Too Fly Foundation, a nonprofit with the sole mission of providing students in under-resourced communities with passports and travel grants so they can participate in study and volunteer abroad programs. To inspire curiosity abroad, we partner with small businesses to global organizations, host one-of-a-kind fundraisers, provide Virtual Reality travel experience to students, as well as provide passports to deserving middle school through collegiate students.
Family is a very important part of my life, and since I started volunteering at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House over 10 years ago, I am always reminded of the importance of keeping families close, especially during hard times. The Ronald McDonald House is a global organization that provides homes for families with sick children in the local area hospitals. Every visit is unique and rewarding, whether you are cooking, greeting, listening, cleaning or simply being there with a smile on your face, it is an opportunity to share love and comfort to those in need. These volunteering visits, allow the Ronald McDonald House to direct more donations to services supporting children and their families. I have continued this tradition each year volunteering with different groups including co-workers, family, and friends most recently we visited the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake with the Clarkston summer bootcamp program. I encourage everyone to grab a group of friends and find a local Ronald McDonald Home near you!
