What inspired you to join the Young Professionals Council (YPC)?
After speaking with members of the CPNYC staff, I was impressed by the organization’s mission to embrace children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. As a member of the YPC, I work to further this mission.
What skills or assets do you bring to the team?
Before joining the YPC team, I worked for a transnational NGO based in Paris, France that supports children with imprisoned parents. The experience has given me insight into how another organization with a similar mission as CPNYC’s operates.
What have you found to be the most rewarding part of being on the YPC so far?
Learning how other members came to be involved with CPNYC and hearing why they have been inspired to join. We are a diverse group working towards a common goal.
Which upcoming event are you most excited about?
I love to cook, so it would have to be a toss-up between the Cooking Contest and The Chef’s Dinner.
