MEET A SUNI BOARD MEMBER Name: Jennifer Superka How long have you been a SUNI board member? 5 years How long have you lived in Sunnyside? 8 years Why did you get involved as a board member? I had heard a CPR story about a turnaround school (Trevista) which was just up the street from me. I was reminded of the idea that "it takes a village", so I started volunteering as a tutor with the Bridge Project. When my student graduated, I knew I still wanted to volunteer in my neighborhood. I went to the SUNI Annual Pizza Party and spoke with SUNI board members, all of whom seemed like nice people that I would like to get to know. I realize now that joining the board helped me gain facilitation and community-building skills that boosted my resume when I applied for my current job. Not only have I gained valuable experience and connections, I have made friends and expanded my network which helps the neighborhood feel even more like home.
