Why Miami Children’s Initiative?

This organization is one of consistency. Miami Children’s Initiative has a cradle to career strategy which is implemented to build a relationship with each child from daycare to college. MCI is an organization that proves to the children and families they will support them throughout life.

What’s the best part of your work?

The best part of my work is the engagement with the community and unconditional love from the children, all of the “I LOVE YOU MS. HOOD” with a big smile makes my job worthwhile.

What’s your most memorable MCI experience?

My most memorable MCI experience was the celebration of our 10th Anniversary Weekend. I was able to repel down the JW Marriot from the 19th floor to raise funds for our babies, as well as walk in a PEACE MARCH with our community, the walk was so POWERFUL it exemplified FAITH, HOPE AND UNITY, “It truly had me speechless”.

How has MCI impacted your life?

MCI has impacted my life in so many ways, in particular it has allowed me to grow as an individual as well as let my light SHINE in the liberty city community.
