How long have you been a Mighty volunteer? I started in September 2013.
What do you do at Mighty Writers? I serve as an intern that handles some administrative duties as well as working directly with Academy students, assisting them with homework and writing.
What did you like to write as a kid? Narratives and creating stories from picture prompts.
What is your favorite thing to write now? Letters. Hand-written letters. It’s one form of writing I wish would make a comeback.
“The laughter and joy that the Mighty students bring into my life keep my heart young and healthy.”
What makes someone a Mighty Writer? Anyone with a passion to write. We all have creativity and talent. It is the passion to develop that makes someone Mighty.
What keeps you coming back? The energy and joy that the students bring each day.
Why do writing and Philly go together? Because of the great diversity that is Philly. There are so many stories, experiences and points of view.
Produced by Mighty Writers and narrated by legendary Philadelphia music producer Kenny Gamble, GOING BLACK: THE LEGACY OF PHILLY SOUL RADIO, is a two-hour audio documentary on the history of Black radio in Philadelphia.
