Nice To Meet You, I'm Nicole!
Transcript of Nice To Meet You, I'm Nicole!
See you in class! I have a dog named Spencer. He's a Pomeranian and he's about 8 years old. He likes apple slices and barking at bikes. I'm half Jamaican on my mother's side and half Puerto Rican on my father's side. I am an obsessive baker. My specialty is cheesecake, but my cupcakes are good too. I received my Associate's Degree in Journalism in 2009 from Washtenaw Community College and my Bachelor's Degree in English in 2011 from the University of Michigan. I have worked at the Ypsilanti District Library for 6 years, and have experience in just about every department of the public library including adult reference, youth, teen, and circulation. Currently I'm a Paraprofessional at the Michigan Avenue Branch, which is located in the center of Ypsilanti city. I prepare and teach computer classes for adults, ranging from the basics of using a mouse and keyboard to Microsoft Office software to fun internet tools like Prezi. I also run programs, handle book displays, and organize program statistics. I'm in LOVE with my job! Working in an urban library where our patrons depend on our resources, not just for entertainment, but for the basic necessities has taught me what a key role libraries can play in the lives of the community. Our computers are the only access to the internet that many patrons have available for classes, homework, and finding jobs and apartments. The majority of our patrons walk to our location because they don't have cars or transportation. With my degree I'm hoping to find a job as a librarian in an urban setting--whether academic or public--where I feel I will be able to make the most difference in the lives of people in my community. I'm also hoping to find a career that allows me to interact with the library's teens.
