Miriam’s Kitchen

It has been an absolute joy to serve at MK with such an amazing cohort. On the 18th and 20th, we served on the advocacy side and attended the Mayor's budget engagement forum. It was an interesting experience, and showed great insight into how the government works, operates, and takes resident feedback. I am very glad that we went because it was not only a learning experience, but a great bonding experience for the cohort. It was so nice to get off campus and see everyone hanging out and forming inside jokes. It has definitely made us all closer, and added a new element to our cohort meetings and serving at site. I have also created deeper bonds with both the guests and employees at MK, and am so ever thankful to be able to have this experience with my cohort.

Miriam’s Kitchen

It has been so enjoyable to be back into the swing of things and serve at Miriam's so far this semester. I have finally gotten into a routine where I am able to serve 3 days a week, switching it day between the kitchen and guest services. I love getting to interact with guests in different aspects each day and week, and have been building even stronger bonds with them. This semester has definitely had it's emotional and stressful times, but I am glad that my time at MK has steadily been amazing.

It has been such a joy to work with The Climb Is Our Story program this semester. Because of my class schedule this semester, I had to take a more behind-the-scenes approach to working with the students. Although I missed seeing the students face-to-face on a weekly basis, I enjoyed working on the administrative side, and was excited to put on the end of the year celebration. Although circumstances have changed, it has been clear that our dedication to the students hasn't. Being able to engage with the students in this realm to offer support and guidance has deepened my relationship with a majority of them and allowed me to take a more hands-on approach as our time together comes to an end. Overall, I am so very grateful for this program to have run, and cannot wait to see what's next in store.

Miriam’s Kitchen

It was so nice to be back at Miriam's for another semester. I have been able to set up my schedule so that I can come Monday-Wednesday, and I rotate between guest services and the kitchen each shift. It has been really nice to interact with the guests in different capacities each day, and I cannot wait to see what this semester has in store.
