It’s important that every kid knows they have a story worth sharing and someone that wants to hear it.

How would you define your role at MW? I take my passions and skills and work to make them accessible to youth. It’s important that every kid knows that they have someone who cares about them and believes in their future. It’s important to me that every kid knows that they have a story worth sharing and that someone wants to listen to it.

Why do writing and Philly go together? Not only does the city have history, but every person that lives here has their own history and it’s important that everyone’s story is told and saved for generations.

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.
