I Am We is an amazing not for profit that I work with as a Co-Associate Board Chair & Leader in Strategic Partnerships. I Am We is a 501(c)(3) arts organization. Our purpose is to create a more unified Chicagoland by creating bridges between youth and community through the arts. See article for a fundraiser I organized for I Am We. The fundraiser's theme centered around a jewelry making class I taught to the event's guests.
See I Am We Newsletter for interviews conducted between the I Am We summer students within the Austin neighborhood, and citizens of Chicago (myself and my Rainbow Assisted Animal Therapy dog included).
