Q: Why is your work at the Begun Center important to you, to our community, and to the world? My current project and work is focused on at risk youth. Our youth are our future and, now more than ever, we need to support them. Providing resources for after-school programming, providing food and snacks, and ensuring a safe environment for youth to be welcomed into are small steps to change an at-risk youth’s outlook on life. Supporting those that conduct direct services for youth is both heartwarming and encouraging for our community and world.
Q: What is a cause about which you are particularly passionate? I am passionate about crime analysis and crime mapping as well as anti-human trafficking efforts, women’s rights, school/university safety, and human behavior.
