For the past year I have been working for the 21st Century Academic Youth Program on weekends that help inner city children broaden their horizons and understanding to make them more knowledgeable on a variety of skills such as leadership, science, computer skills, writing, etc. My job is to assist the children in molding their talents to become well-rounded individuals in today’s competitive market. Through this great opportunity came great networking through a simple morning conversation.
Irene DelRosso, Instructional Coach for the Department of Academic Support informed me on the great program that they have going on with their morning breakfast routine. This is a vital meal for any child to optimize learning and retention. I proceeded to explain my internship to Irene and what Jimmy Dean’s mission is with partnering with Share Our Strength No Kid Hungry Campaign. I offered her the opportunity of showcasing the program on the NKH Blog site. In doing so the city of Paterson can receive free publicity on the great initiatives they are doing while enhancing the NKH Campaign’s mission Jimmy Dean is so passionate about.
She welcomed the chance and we exchanged numbers. The life of a future public relations specialist is never done, to always seize the opportunity and to take charge is my mantra in life. The work that the Youth Program does along with the Paterson School District breakfast program couldn’t have been a better fit.

I’m the type of person that likes to keep busy and do practically everything. I blog on my spare time, I’m still president of my school organizations (even though I graduated last semester), I’m a freelance on the weekends, but one of the best projects that I have is working with Jessica Shearer from East Rutherford in Love Without Boundaries. We coordinate the annual Long Branch Marathon that will be held May 1st, 2011 with a weekend full of family fun as well and friendly races.
Love Without Boundaries (LWB) is an organization that my student organization at Rutgers, the Chinese Student Organization, has held annual charity events to raise money to help children with surgical needs. LWB provides assistance to children with more than just surgical needs; they are a loving organization that helps healing homes, education, foster care, nutrition, orphanages, and many more!
I am grateful that MWW group has also decided to become a sponsor of this annual charity event, and I hope the rest of the MWW team will come out and support the weekend of! There is a family fun day event on Saturday for guests of all ages where Jessica and I will have tables of caricatures set up. Please feel free to come out and support us the day of. We would also love if you can support the organization that we love here Love Without Boundries!
