An inspiring, very personal devotional

By Joviale Kambo
Social Work Intern

This is my story
A story of a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 4
This is a story of a girl who left her country and became a refugee at the age of 5
A story of a girl who, when growing up, only spoke French
But now speaks 4 other languages
This is a story of a girl who was thrown in high school as a freshman at the age of 18
But now is on her way to grad school
A story of a girl who is willing to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others
This is a story of a girl who is now a woman
A story of a woman who says NO to the famous sentence “give up”
This is a story of a woman who proudly says to you: follow your dreams
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
Last but not least,
This is a story of a woman who speaks of herself in third person.
This is a story about me!
I thank you all for listening. Have a great day!

By Diane Holloway
Communications/Volunteer Coordinator

We had a relatively mild spring, but summer is here and local weather prognosticators say it’s going to be another scorcher. If it’s 95 degrees on your tree-lined street, chances are good the downtown streets are 110 or more. Looking out the windows facing 7th Street, sometimes we can see those wavy lines produced when Texas sun meets black asphalt. I’m sure it’s just my imagination, but sometimes I can even hear it sizzle!

Barbara Jordan Celebration: Behind the Doors

By Diane Holloway
Communications & Volunteer Coordinator

This year’s Barbara Jordan Celebration — our one and only fundraiser — was a smashing success. Not only did we break our fundraising record, but we had more fun than we’ve ever had before! We had excellent food and beverages, a large crowd of completely engaged guests, a super-energetic new auctioneer (Heath Hale of Cowboy Auctioneer) and our very own movie premiere!
