Jongy agreed to participate in our Take Five interview series:

  1. How did you get involved in working with BDPA? - I started helping out in the Youth Computer Training classroom by bringing snacks.
  2. What is the most rewarding aspect of working with BDPA? - Seeing the light bulbs go on for students. And seeing what they can do when they become serious about the work.
  3. Tell us about a defining moment in your life? - Learning to swim in the deep end of the pool a few years ago was liberating.
  4. Who is your hero and why? - My late mother is my hero. She made the most of her station in life and showed her children the world with few resources.
  5. Any advice for people considering donation to BETF? - Give what you can. It's a great investment in the future of our youth.

Share some BDPA-love with Jongy!
