Thank you

As I sit down to write my final blog, chronicling my year as a challenge Detroit Fellow, I felt ending with a few thank you’s would be appropriate. I would not have had such an  experience without the support of so many others.

Thank you, people of Detroit, for the opportunity to learn and work along side […]

Detroit, Soccer City

When you think Detroit, do you think soccer city?  If your answer is no, then we should talk!
Detroit is a city full of Soccer/Futbol loving people and I am one of them. 
When I moved to the city 4 years ago, I too, was a little skeptical that I would find a soccer family here. What I found […]

One Year Ago

Year 5 interviews are just around the corner and this made me think back to my application process and what I was thinking just a short year ago and why I wanted to be a Challenge Detroit Fellow…….

To the outsider, Detroit is an abandoned building sitting on a vacant lot. To the infrequent visitor, it’s […]

Spring Into Volunteering

It’s officially Spring!

While in Detroit that typically means another month or two of rain and snow, the optimist in me believes the warm weather is here to stay.

Volunteering is an essential component of Challenge Detroit. However despite the instrumental role it plays in our experience, it’s been an ongoing challenge to find new, enjoyable opportunities […]

Detroit…City of Sisterly Love

 

My Sister doesn’t get out much, but what I actually mean is….she has two kids, one is doing every activity imaginable for a 5 year old and the other is a food throwing 18th month old.  Needless to say, she is busy.

So when the stars aligned and her mother-in-law offered to take the kids for […]

With part one of our Fellowship complete, Detroit in the deep freeze of winter (except not really) and applications for next year’s fellows already submitted, I’d like to share a retrospective inventory of our accomplishments thus far.

A look back (by the numbers):

22 Fridays

176 work hours

Remembering District 4

Two months ago I was spending a majority of my time in District 4 of Detroit, also known as the Jeff- Chalmers neighborhood or the East side. My time was spent researching local businesses for the purpose of potentially publishing their stories in the “Small Business Directory” that we were working on with the City of Detroit. […]

An Inimitable Recreational Aura

Amidst the many bars and restaurants burgeoning throughout Detroit, there exists an abundance of unique ventures that allow for recreational endeavor. These opportunities often reside in underappreciated and underutilized realms within the city, and the following are a few of my favorites.

Fowling – a blend of football and bowling with pins arranged on both sides […]

Nutrition and Healthy Food Access in Detroit

Hidden within the positive narrative of Detroit’s comeback is a problem that stands at the forefront of my own professional ambition. Health and wellness, primarily nutrition, has long been an obstacle for those living within city limits, and despite progressive reinvestment in Detroit, it detrimentally persists. For this reason I’d like to touch on the […]
