7/25/19 – Thursday
Today I was able to get a few more stores and organizations to join our coalition.
I enjoyed talking to the manager at the Chicago Public Library in Chinatown, and after a brief discussion, we were able to make a deal and welcome the Chinatown CPL into our coalition. It’s great to have such a great organization join us.
Today was my last official day of outreach in the Chinatown community. It was sad to do but I had a pretty successful day. I have made meaningful connections with business owners in the Chinatown community, and I was able to get a good amount of stores and organizations to join our coalition. Something that I am looking forward to most is coming back to China with my family and being able to interact with all of these new relationships that I have made.
Next week I will be taking Vernalynne, the program director, to meet the business owners that I have been talking to. This allows for them to continue to communicate even after I end my internship here at McKUDOS (once school begins again).
