Share a favorite book or movie and why.
A favorite book of mine, beyond the Harry Potter Series, would be “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury. If you look at the parallels between Bradbury’s 1953 novel and today, it is extremely eerie. He predicted headphones before they were even invented, and he even correctly predicted that we would constantly have them in our ears, unable to sit with silence or our own thoughts. I’m nerding out, of course, but you cannot look around and tell me that us staring at our screens doesn’t remind you of Mildred! I could go on and on, but if you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend.
What have you found to be a favorite experience at UWP so far?
I’m surrounded by people from different backgrounds, professions, and lived experiences who are using their collective knowledge to make Wichita and south central Kansas a better place. Without a doubt, my favorite experience so far has been getting to know and be a part of the team at United Way of the Plains. Everyone is so talented and supportive; I couldn’t ask for a better place to continue to learn, grow and thrive.
