When are you happiest? Happiest when I’m traveling. I don’t care much for flying, I’d much rather teleport.
Your pet peeve/ the thing you spend the most time ranting about? People who complain but keep making the same mistakes. Learn something about yourself already!
Why did you join the Urban League of Portland Young Professionals? I believe I am still young and prefer to use my downtime productively by helping others get to their best. I have a passion for giving back, and the ULPDXYP seems like a great place to continue my journey and share my gifts.
Why do you feel the Urban League Young Professionals are important? Having a sense of community in this ever-growing, overpopulated city is something to appreciate and I believe the YPs of Urban League allows that to happen for anyone looking for their niche.
