What nonprofit do you serve in our community and how do you do it?
I am the new intern serving at the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center, located in Readers Services at the Allen County Public Library. With 20 hours a week I seek to help facilitate the underpinnings of the programs, classes, and communications of resources to patrons interested in beginning and/or aiding nonprofits that they are serving.
How did you come by this work?
The truth is I’m still not sure what I want to be when I grow up and when I became aware of the intern position at the PCNRC I saw it as a great educational opportunity. I applied for the open position and was very pleased to be considered and subsequently offered this chance to serve.
If you could have one wish granted, what would it be?
To have a million dollars.
If you had a million dollars, what’s the first thing you’d do?
Pay some mortgages. = )
What is your favorite part of your work?
I’ve just gotten started, but am excited about seeing tasks that I help complete affecting the organizations and individual lives of the community around me.
Ebook or traditional print?
I am a physical book kind of kid, but I do appreciate Ebooks and look forward to familiarizing myself with their ins and outs as they become more prevalent.
Do you have any pets?
My wife and I are the proud owners of two beautiful chinchillas. We bought them a couple of months apart and at first they did not get along. I am happy to report today, though, that it looks like they might become fast friends.
Who was your favorite teacher? What was s/he like?
My favorite teacher was probably Mr. Keller in 5th grade. He was tall and easy-going, with a wonderful shock of wavy gray hair. He said I had a good sense of humor. I rather took that to heart.
