Favour's Story

Favour believes Baltimore is a place with opportunity. “It does not matter your race or gender, Baltimore welcomes you and establishes your dreams if you are up for it.”  For Favour, it's worthwhile to give back by investing time and energy to a city that has helped her establish her education and career.

Favour applied to be a Collegetown Fellow because “I do not believe that only talking about a problem solves it.” The Collegetown Fellowship has taught Favour so much about race and Baltimore while laying the groundwork on how to become a social innovator. The Collegetown Fellowship is a great opportunity to expose students to Baltimore and its community.
