2UrbanGirls would like to introduce you to Kawika Smith, a Class of 2020 graduate, from Verbum Dei High School.
Kawika is a gifted young man who will be attending Morehouse College this fall majoring in sociology. Kawika is also a community advocate having joined his areas neighborhood council at the age of 16.
What prompted you to join your areas neighborhood council?
Important conversations were being held and the voice of the youth wasn’t at the table being represented by a youth. I saw the neighborhood council as one of the most effective ways to get the community engaged civically.
What other ways have you given back to the community?
