How has your participation in the community-engaged leadership program supported you in helping people get along better? This program has taught me how to facilitate dialogue and form connections with people.
Community-engaged leadership is … using your skills and abilities to help a public purpose.
I work with my community(ies) to address … economic and urban development using the power of computing.
My friends would say I’m … passionate about my work and funny!
Fun fact: I can bend my fingers backwards.
The best part about the community-engaged leadership program is … the community and cohort of students.
For my Stage 2 committed project, I … worked with the Georgia Department of Transportation (City of Atlanta and Gwinnett County).
My community partner(s) taught me … how to give back to my hometown.
I plan to continue my journey as an engaged leader by … creating technologies that help people.
