Hello! My name is Diya Mitchell and I am a rising sophomore at the University of Michigan. To me, a community is a group of people living in a specific area that share similarities and differences, yet they live as one. They understand each other’s culture, they understand the land. Detroit is a community filled with resiliency and pride, which is one of the few reasons as to why I chose to do community work in my city. I love to network and I also have a curiosity of learning the laws and how it affects my community. This summer I’d like to strengthen both those skills and my public speaking/ presentation skills. I think having a new found knowledge of how things operate in Detroit and teaching others about the history would make me proud.
