Statements from 2015 election:
I have always believed in working to strengthen communities. My family and service experience has fueled much of my desire to run for Cambridge City Council. In elementary school I found my passion for service in the Young Heroes and City Heroes programs run by City Year. As a student at the University of Pennsylvania, I continued to work building stronger communities through the creation of a hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics with an Arts component (STEAM) program with the National Society of Black Engineers, of which I am the current Technology OutReach Community Help (TORCH) Committee Director of Partnerships & Resources. We partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Philadelphia.
I graduated with a dual major resulting in a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. As I developed a body of work centering around mechatronics and robotics; I subsequently founded Nananke, a community-centric tech company by developing the Cadet Platform which is a service working to impassion students in STEM, Creative Arts, and Public Enterprise.
Today, in Cambridge, I am an active member of several community groups: The Goree House, The Port Cafe, and the Flash Seminars discussion group. I have anchored my focus on the following:
The current climate in our city is such that it mandates, unavoidably, a spirit of collaboration to elevate voices of concern as the continuous desire to develop dominates the landscape. I am running for office on a SLATE because of the progressive collaborative mentality, the diverse representation, strong grounding in STEM, the problem solver approach to policy, and the underlying consensus on the importance of public servants who put in the work. It would be an honor to serve you Cambridge.
