How long have you been a Mighty Volunteer? Since February 2014.

What do you do at Mighty Writers? I volunteer on Tuesday afternoons with the Mighty Writers Academy.

What is your favorite thing to write now? “Fortunately… Unfortunately…” stories with my young friends at MW.


I have never felt more connected to my neighborhood.


What makes someone a Mighty Writer? A Mighty Writer enjoys language and language arts for their own sake, but also understands the power of practicing writing as a major key to personal growth and happiness, stronger communication, healthier relationships and a better career.

What keeps you coming back to Mighty Writers? I continue coming back to MW because of the sense of community and because the kids are so much fun. I have lived in South Philly over fifteen years, and I have never felt more connected to my neighborhood.
