Showing Some Love for Arts and Culture

Throughout the month of July, each Fellow was tasked with the opportunity to partner with a nonprofit organization to work on an individual impact project that positively benefits the City of Detroit. During this time, I’ve partnered with CultureSource, which serves as a member association for arts and culture groups within Southeast Michigan.

Things Are Not Always As They Seem

Our last official challenge came to a close Friday, June 17 and I still can’t believe we’ve made it through six challenges in the City of Detroit as a cohort. This last one in particular was a bit challenging (no pun intended) for my team specifically; having to deal with conflicting opinions from a community […]

One Year Later…

As we move into my favorite month of the year, June (my birthday month), I realize how quickly things have progressed since the beginning of this journey with Challenge Detroit. This time last year I just found out I was accepted into the program and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles wanted to be my host company! What […]

How to Ace an Interview

I’m actually fairly novice in the interview space but I thought I’d use this month’s blog to share some of my tips for the Challenge Detroit Year 5 applicants to help prepare them for their upcoming interviews (or anyone else looking for some quick pointers).

For those who don’t know, in round four of the application […]

First Quarter Reflection

I had a few “resolutions” going into this year, but wasn’t too strict on how quickly I wanted to accomplish them or if I even wanted to give them a start and end date. To begin, I wanted to read a new book each month or at least attempt to.

I definitely made an effort toward […]

Imagine a World Where We All Rode the Bus

As I preach over and over again, Challenge Detroit exposes me to a lot of important conversations happening in the City of Detroit. One of those conversations is surrounding regional transit. A topic I know many have talked about and many have been criticized about and I, as a Fellow and young mind in the […]

What the Reality Is…

In light of the many traumatic events affecting the State of Michigan currently, I have come to reflect on many experiences that Challenge Detroit has put me through these past months. Specifically, regarding the media around Detroit Public Schools, the sickouts, and lacking of school resources for students.

 

I think back to our second challenge as […]

A Thank You Letter to 2015

Two-thousand fifteen. What can I say to you?

First, I can start out by thanking you for being the year I graduated from a great university with an expansive education, not only in my degree but through my experiences as well. Kalamazoo and Western Michigan University will always hold a large place in my heart, along with […]

Getting My Family to Fall in Love with the City

I’ve lived in Detroit for about 5 months now, and I am proud to say that I’m obsessed with this city. Everything about it amazes me. The art, the cultures, the food, the people….there is something new and different to experience every single day. This city has opened, not only my eyes, but my heart to […]

Stress, I Just Don’t Have Time For You Right Now

You know that feeling when you have a ton on your plate and every little thing is running through your mind but you can’t get anything done because you’re just so focused on how stressed you are about all the things you have to do? It’s almost like you get more stressed thinking about how […]
