Hey everybody, my name is Olivia and I’m working at the MSU Extension Detriot Partnership for Food Learning, and Innovation(DPFLI). my goal is to become a doctor who is easily accessible to African-American women in underserved communities. So I was drawn to DCERP because I wanted to learn more about the Detroit Community. One skill I have that I think will help me be successful this summer is my willingness to learn. I know next to nothing about gardening/farming but I think I’ll be able to learn all I can quickly and make a significant contribution to the DPFFLI. A strength I’d like to develop is how to engage with community members. By the end of the program, I would like help to improve the DPFLI’s interaction with the surrounding neighborhood. I think this will help the DPFLI achieve its goals faster.
