I have been serving the field of after school for the past 18 years.
During the past few years I have been doing a lot of work around Core Values and finding purpose. Through that work I have had the privilege to work and be surrounded by incredible individuals whom I call friends and colleagues. Through my work around Core Values, I have found that my 3 Core Values are Humility, Integrity and Service. I call it HIS work.
Humility is about my faith. Integrity is about my hope around the person who I strive to be. Service is about my love for community. I find that in after school, a big part of what we do is to provide opportunities for youth and staff to find their voice and provide them with the platform for them to be able to share their amazing stories with the world. I have realized that I have been given an incredible opportunity to impact lives.
What I didn’t realize until very recently is that the life that was impacted the most through this journey was my own.
This morning I had a protein shake and a banana.
