Mighty Volunteer

March 6th, 2014


Lisa Nwankwo

Employer: Freelance Grant Writer and Development Consultant

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

How long have you been a Mighty volunteer? Since March 2012.

How would you define your role at MW? At MW I am a support to the kids in my city, in every way that I can! At MW I take my passions and skills and work to make them accessible to youth. It is very important to me that every kid knows that they have someone who cares about them and believes in their future. It is also very important to me that every kid knows that they have a story worth sharing and that someone wants to listen to it.

Danielle & Nadirah = Mighty Buds

March 5th, 2014


Danielle Burrows and Nadirah Nichols began their mentorship in fall 2011 when Nadirah was an eleven-year old sixth grader. Today, Nadirah’s 14 and finishing eighth grade at the Truebright Science Academy Charter School. We caught up with Danielle recently to find out how it’s going and how she likes being a mentor.

What kind of kid is Nadirah? What kinds of things does she like?
I wasn’t surprised to discover that Nadirah’s the youngest in her family because you sense right away that she’s spent a lot of time absorbing adult banter. She’s quick-witted and precocious, but not in a way that robs her of her youthfulness. I’m blown away by her ability to churn out writing that is paced and executed in a style not far removed from young adult literature. She was one of the first kids through the door at Mighty Writers. She is an avid reader and especially loves young adult author Sharon Draper.
