Over my four years of involvement with the NFJC I have raised my awareness of the issues in the WNY community with respect to tolerance and inclusion as well as how I can have a positive influence on my neighbors. The greatest impact has been with my family -- as a result of taking the opportunity to invite them to a variety of NFJC events perceptions of ethnic and racially diverse individuals has changed for the better.
