What did Charles have to offer?
Five years ago I decided to go back to school to earn an MS in urban policy, to learn how to systematically address the social problems that I was passionate about helping to alleviate. Part of the lack of commitment or recognition of the severity of many of these problems is a schism in perception or relevance to our daily lives. In reality, we are all interdependent. Our food, natural resources, and basic services are all provided by individuals who have been impacted by distress in their communities of origin or in their present communities. Greetings. Your passion moves through your project description. I have successfully designed and implemented strategies to support and improve the aspirations of underserved communities. In particular, I am passionate about poverty alleviation. Food insecurity is a tremendous obstacle in the ability of impoverished communities to thrive.
