I wanted to be apart of the Detroit Community Based Research Program because of my passion for social justice and my future goal of staring a non profit. However, this summer I learned that I do not have to wait to make change. In fact, my future begins now. I will continue to volunteer for Brilliant Detroit into the Fall. I know I will not be able to work full time, but any community organizer understands that any help is beneficial. I also plan on joining more clubs that focus on mentoring, so I can begin to understand mentoring programs better.
