What’s your favorite thing about Chi-AWE?

The connections! When I first moved to Chicago I was trying every way I could to find friends and get settled in as soon as possible. Upon discovering Chi-AWE and its diverse programs, numerous networking opportunities and community doors opened up. The extensive network Chi-AWE engages in attests to the profound value it brings to the community. This organization's contributions are reciprocated by other organizations and individuals- creating a lively community.

What’s a fun fact about you?

I take reduce, reuse, recycle very seriously! I even made a pair of earrings out of my own wisdom teeth!

If not at a Chi-AWE event, where can we find you?

At home in my studio sewing away the day.
