The launch of our new website last summer has opened numerous opportunities for creative communication. One of those opportunities is the ability to share stories of impact, challenges, and success.
We are pleased to introduce to you Rachel Dick, a guest blogger for the next few months. Rachel will be telling CPR stories and illustrate for you the effect CPR has on young people.
Q: What is your connection with CPR?
A: My husband, Steve, grew up with Cid’s (CPR’s Executive Director) son, Alex. I came to know Cid through Steve and CPR through Cid.
Q: Why are you pursuing this project?
A: I am currently a senior at IUPUI majoring in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. A class I am currently in is requiring us to publish a piece of creative nonfiction during this semester. I immediately thought of CPR. I believe in CPR’s message and I’m looking forward to writing about it!
Q: What do you hope to gain from doing this?
A: I hope to gain a better understanding of CPR and what it is you do. By hearing stories from students who have gone through the program and who have been impacted by CPR in one way or another, I will get a great look into how CPR’s message is influencing the youth in and around Indianapolis as well as gain invaluable insight into the interviewing and editing/publishing process.
Rachel’s blog posts will be published throughout the months of April and May. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get updates on her new posts!
