As a young and growing professional I have found my place in the city that put the world on wheels. I often get the question, "Why Detroit" and there are days that I ask myself the same thing. Why am I choosing to start and grow my career and my life in a city that can't provide some of the most simple city services to is 700,000 residents?
I chose Detroit because it's a place where you can see change happening every single day. It's a place where you I don't feel like one of the masses, but rather one within a community, working each day to make change happen. I was drawn to Detroit for a brand new fellowship program that promised to provide me with a job, a network, a place to live in the city and opportunities to help local nonprofits futher their missions. I'm staying in Detroit because I know that I can make change happen in the streets around me. I may not know what that change is yet but I'm working to figure it out and that's where StartingBloc comes in.
StartingBloc is an opportunity for me to learn from others, have the tough conversations, and be inspired by the change others are making in their communities around the world.
