Squad Goals (The Making of a Fellow)

 
Squad Goals (The Making of a Fellow) by Demond Childers
 

Goals, goals, goals, goals

Goals I do adore!

Squad goals, career goals, city goals a go

I turned hard goals into jello on the living room floor

I strived to be the best, I played through much pain

I saw goals scored at DC FC games

Goalies did their job,  now I’m […]

The Making of a Fellow

Live, Work, Play, Lead, Give.

Live, Work, Play, Lead, Give.

Live, Work, Play, Lead, Give.

These are the tenants of the fellowship experience that is Challenge Detroit. When our year began as fellows, we were bright-eyed and curious about the grand experience that awaited us. We knew that a considerable aspect to our experience would revolve around some […]

Small Wins Are STILL Wins!!!

Year 5 Challenges have now concluded!!

Empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test.

Empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test.

Empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test.

Repeat.

For the past several months, fellows and I have been drilling this process into hour hearts and minds, a process refer to as human-centered design thinking. This is a process of which I am most grateful because it […]

Q-Line to Infinity and Beyond

The Q-Line is now in it’s test phase in Detroit.  Stretching from New Center to Downtown, and through midtown, this red and white painted piece of machinery has been the rave and talk of citizens for the past couple of years or so as construction began to make room for Detroit’s new ‘trolley’ train system. […]

The Reality of Scope Creep and the Vitality of Persistence

Scope creep (also called requirement creep, function creep and feature creep) in project management refers to changes, continuous or uncontrolled growth in a project’s scope, at any point after the project commences. This can occur when the scope of a project is not properly defined, documented, or controlled. (per https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scope_creep)

Currently at the mid-point of our […]

Motor City Winter

When people ask me about what Detroit is like, one thing I’m almost always for sure to say is, “If you plan on coming to Detroit, it’s best to come in the summer time!”  Yes, the warmer the better, in my opinion.  Though over the last several years, Detroit has made considerable strides into making […]

You got to have STUPID Faith!!!

On November 7, 2016, I got a text message from my sister that my younger cousin, Desiree Lampkin had passed away on a Sunday morning.  I wasn’t even aware that she had been sick.  Though, just several years earlier, in 2010, her twin sister had lost her life to an ongoing heart ailment at just […]

Speechless

By Demond Childers

It’s been weeks since 11/9 and still no word…
Regional transportation rejected, how absurd
Trying to find solace, but words escape me
Make America Great… again?
You must mean, like the Walter Scott mistrial
7 shots, just a routine traffic stop
Even still, planted evidence, a crooked cop just on his routine
I’m supposed to be happy… or am I?
My […]

Leadership and Power (in Numbers)

Leadership.  We can point to any of the greatest civilizations of the world and find that the  great achievements therein were ultimately defined by the leaders of the time.  Sometimes history proves to be accurate, but truthfully, sometimes credit isn’t always given where credit is due.  And so, at times, though the end product of said […]

Gentrification in Detroit… Not just Black & White

 

Caught in the middle looking up.

Hope passed us over.

Stuck between two worlds.

Will you remember me when it’s over?

 

If there is one thing I have learned since moving back to Detroit, nothing is truly black and white, not even gentrification.  Gentrification… do you feel that?  The way it rolls off your tongue, say it louder!  Do […]
