Spotlight on Clevelanders Making a Difference

I am a single mother of 3 wonderful son's. I was born and raised in Cleveland in the Lakeshore area all my life. It's a beautiful blessing that I get to raise my son's in the same community I grew up in. Alot has changed over the years but my neighborhood is on a big come back. I graduated high school from Health Careers then I became a mom and raising my children. I am a college graduate of Bryant & Stratton College with my Associates Degree in Human Resources. I recently started the Green Rose Foundation My vision for my foundation is "Keeping Families Together One Petal At A Time" I am also a new published author of my two latest books Cleveland L.A.N.E and Poetry From A Rose. I am currently working on two new books and a screenplay.

My Green Rose Foundation Summer Reading Program is from June 27th to August 8th which is every Tuesday at Greater New Canaan Ministries 14911 Westropp 441108 from 11:30am to 12:45pm. I just love my community just that much and add a new element so that everyone in my community grows and pass it along. I put the Spotlight on myself because what I overcame and most of all what I have accomplished this far.

Lakeshore Community

My neighborhood is Lakeshore. We are under construction the streets are looking nice. The only complaint is the traffic gets tidias but if you dont have to go far then walking isn't such a bad idea. The Lakeshore area is being revamped and it's beautiful. I love my neighborhood since 1988 my son's are almost grown. We still love Lakeshore very much from the new Waterloo Arts District. I wish Fannys will be reopened as a new family restaurant. There are many other great restaurants in the Lakeshore area as well
