Building Student Support at Wayne Law

The Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights on Wayne State University’s campus does a phenomenal job with community engagement and programming for the youth of the city of Detroit. These components are what drew us to work with the Keith Center on our impact project. As we began our project, we identified 3 main […]

A Belle Isle Wedding

On Sunday, July 2nd, my cousin and her fiance’ became Mr. & Mrs at the Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory; one of my most favorite places in Detroit. The Conservatory has served as my winter escape–the Tropical and Palm House transport me to my birthplace, The Philippines. When my cousin told me they  chose the Conservatory […]

Detroit Schools: To close or not to close?

I was listening to an NPR story regarding the proposed school closings in Detroit and was appalled by what I was hearing. The Michigan School Reform Office (SRO) sent letters to parents of students who attend one of the schools on the closing list. These letters were sent without letting any school administrators know; causing […]

Don’t Drink the “Kool-aid”

I grew up attending private/catholic schools for most of my formal education. I didn’t think there was really any difference between the schools I attended and the public schools my friends went to aside from the obvious– I wore a uniform every day, attended mass at least once during the school week, and had some […]

New Year, New You?

The end of the year is a natural time to reflect and set some intentions for the upcoming year. I myself am not big into new year’s resolutions because I see it as something similar to a crash diet (side note because the exercise physiologist in me needs to say this: losing 1-2 pounds per […]

What’s it going to take?

I was scrolling through my twitter timeline back in 2011 while living in SoCal, and came across a huffpost article titled, “Nearly Half of Detroit’s Adults Are Functionally Illiterate, Report Finds.” I was unaware of the state of education and any related matters at this point in my life, so I was completely taken by […]

Of course you can! This is your story!

I had an experience during my first year working in a school that both broke my heart and changed my perspective. I was working for a literacy organization that worked directly with students five days a week, during the school day. To encourage students to become more interested in reading and writing, we would have […]
