Personal Statement: Why I am interested in being on the Board of SOSNA.

As the owner and operator of the Beauty Shop Café, I’ve been an integral part of the South of South community for the past four plus years. For the first several years I was in business, I lived in the Passyunk Square neighborhood but felt that I was much more a part of SOSNA. Earlier this year, I finally moved to the neighborhood and along with the joys of a shorter commute, I feel I’ve resolved the personal contradiction of not living in my own community.
