Haskell UNT NKU together

I am deeply concerned with the state of emergency our world is currently in but am doing my part to make difference. By most stereotypes, I am the antagonist made famous by the illicitness of a subculture that spawns out of the social demise happening within forgotten neighborhoods. I have participated in the so-called barrio experience, and having done so, consider it the reason for having a different outlook on life. When it comes down to it, I am also just your average student here at the University of North Texas. I am first generation everything, but not the last.

—information about the picture—-

As the picture above shows, I (in back row to the left of the girl with the white bandanna)  love to travel and explore areas affected by poverty.  I am president of Students for Future Without Poverty at the University of North Texas(UNT) and work with a team of students to craft up ingenious ways of helping those affected by a lack of opportunities that comes with being poor.  The background of the picture above is in Zacatecas, Mexico (ruins of an indigenous civilization actually) which this past May of 08, a group of students from Haskell Indian Nations University and members from the student chapters at Northern Kentucky University and UNT, visited to install newly refurbished, re-designed solar panels by local high school students, in remote village schools so the kids would have access to education via computers, satellite link up, and video.

FWOP is a non profit that works in communities, both locally and abroad, promoting sustainable community development through the 4E’s (empowerment, education, environment, and enterprise) in areas stricken by poverty or its tell tell signs. If you would like to learn more about it, visit www. fwop.org for a sneak peak at the work we plan to realize! Thanks for visiting and know that we are not playing around when it comes to the potential to empower people to break the myth of no effect!
