• Hello my name is Dr. Glo and I've been writing professionally since 2010. Writing brought me through some challenging and exciting times and ultimately gave birth to my writing career and wanting to create spaces in vulnerable communities to nurture literacy and show people how to incorporate technology into personal and professional tasks.

     

    I recall as a young girl running errands for neighbors at the request of my grandmother. The errands became second nature to me. The older I became and began experiencing other communities and settings a desire was planted to want to strengthen and grow vulnerable communities. This wasn't a far fetched idea because there were a handful of black owned businesses in the community I resided in. I've always known that helping others by serving is one of the core parts of my DNA and soul's journey.

     

    My purpose is to strengthen literacy in low resourced communities throughout the Westside of Chicago by creating spaces for residents, visitors and supporters to create and enhance literacy.
