JC's Story: How I got here and how you found me

One might say that my journey into community development began in 2013 but I'm pretty sure it began in 2006. In spring of 2006, I helped start the Avondale Youth Council which was started by Ozie Davis III who is now the Executive Director of Avondale Comprehensive Development Corp. He instilled in me the importance of returning home by saying things like "We need you. The neighborhood needs you." I went on to pursue other interests in Chemistry and later Business Analytics only to come full circle and end up exactly where my community wanted me to be.
