Personal Statement

I recognized my desire for Social Work while owning an inner-city hair store and salon. I found myself appalled at what some of our youth was going through and wanted to reach them in a different way. I began an internship at the United Way that involved case managing for people who were in danger of losing a child to the Department of Children and Families. Despite a high need for social work in the greater New Bedford area, it became obvious very quickly that programs and resources for families are incredibly scarce. As a volunteer at P.A.C.E Childcare Works, I recently launched the pilot of a parenting program with the goal of reducing recidivism in the Department of Children and Families. Parenting programs assist parents in their growth and development in areas that create a healthy home life and provide a mechanism for measuring whether a person is able to care for a child in their home. It is my mission to create a healthier community by helping to create healthier home lives for the children on the SouthCoast.
