Strengthening Visual Connections with the YWCA Metropolitan Detroit

I wrapped up my year as a Challenge Detroit Fellow with a culminating opportunity to co-design and execute an impact project with a nonprofit partner of my choice throughout the summer. My nonprofit partner, the YWCA Metropolitan Detroit, received my sponsored time and talent to collaborate on a purposeful, creative project for 7 weeks. 

The YWCA is […]

Marketing Associates | Five Generations of Impact with Challenge Detroit

In May 2016, I vividly remember sitting across from my mentor in a coffee shop in my hometown and expressing my deep interest in Marketing Associates as a host company. I had just been accepted as a finalist and received the host company job guide. I needed to rank the opportunities based on my level […]

Empowered Women, Empower Women

I love when I find myself in a room filled with successful women who make me want to up my game. You think I’d be self-conscious, but I’ve been surrounded by brilliant, successful women my entire life.

Growing up, my Mom was the Executive Director of a local non-profit with a women’s rights-focused mission. Of course, […]

Investing in Myself: Growth and Goal Crushing through Engagement with Knowledgeable, Passionate Detroiters

Week after week, I am overwhelmed by the sheer number of interesting events happening in Detroit. As I scroll through Facebook, I’m constantly shown events that my friends are attending or interested in. For a long time, I became too overwhelmed by my options and gave up on trying to make choices and schedule the […]

The Power of Storytelling

It’s hard to believe that we’ve wrapped up our fourth challenge! For the past five weeks, my team and I have been working with Reclaim Detroit. What a rewarding project! We were challenged to use storytelling to build awareness of job training as a key element of the social mission of Reclaim Detroit.

As we set […]

Inspiration, Energy and Influence at the 2017 Detroit Policy Conference

This month, I had the privilege of attending the 2017 Detroit Policy Conference hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber with a group of my fellow fellows and Challenge Detroit leadership. It was an absolutely incredible day, filled with inspirational words from business, civic, community and government leaders with a shared vision and passion to innovate for […]

The Intersection of Art & Health: Who Knew?

The intersection of art and health…who knew? Well, perhaps some of you did. Speak for yourselves, though! I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts, and somehow was never introduced to the relationship between art and health. I’ve always believed art to be a part of everything, but had never given a thought to this specific […]

The Obligatory New Year Post

Recently, I read that a mere 8% of people successfully achieve their resolutions for the new year. An extremely low percentage, but not the least bit shocking to me. I’ve never been successful at goal-setting myself. Yet somehow, I achieved so much this year. Which got me thinking: imagine what I could achieve if I […]

Challenge #2, Food Insecurity & Checking My Privilege

Raw thoughts as we move forward with Challenge #2…

We’ve officially devled into our second challenge of the year, partnering with local non-profit Forgotten Harvest to address food insecurity in Detroit. We kicked off last month with a visit to one of the agencies that receives food from Forgotten Harvest. While there, we participated in their pantry and helped pass […]

None of Us Are as Smart as All of Us

How many times have you been asked about your ability to work collaboratively during an interview? I can confidently say that I’ve been asked about it during every one I’ve ever been through. When I moved to Detroit post-grad in September 2015, I took a full time serving job to occupy my time and pay bills while I […]
