Joanna Bak School: Drexel University
How long have you been a volunteer with MW? Six months.
How would you define your role at MW? The handy “Any” intern; doing anything from printing papers, helping with homework, drawing pictures to running around West Philly!
A Mighty Writer has quiet endurance and spark.
If you could put a second Mighty Writers anywhere, where would it be and why? North Philly. I interned for another non-profit there last spring, and the space was too small for many kids to be enrolled in the program. The need for basic writing and reading skills is very great in North Philly. I know that parents and children would really appreciate it if there was another reading and writing program in that area.
