Why Miami Children’s Initiative?
Miami Children's Initiative chose me when the staff saw potential in me that I didn't realize myself upon my hiring. That then reflected into the children and families I have the privilege of serving each day. It's an initiative carried forth beyond the confines of our work schedule and taken to every environment we're in.
What’s the best part of your work?
Forming relationships with our families. Every child and parent I have met have taught me more than I have imagined.
What’s your most memorable MCI experience?
When a mother I haven't known long called me 'brother' and ceased calling me anything formal, strengthening our bond and inviting me into her family.
How has MCI impacted your life?
By reinforcing that the slogan, "Whatever It Takes" requires extreme sacrifice, persistence and a deeper level of love.
