Dabria Douglas is a recent graduate of Ottawa High School in Grand Rapids. In this interview with the Grand Rapids Times, she talks about her change in attitude about school, deciding what to do for an occupation in the future and more.
… Douglas:I am working at Amazon right now and I plan to take a year and a half break and then I plan to enroll at Grand Rapids Community College’s culinary arts program. I was cooking at the Boys and Girls Club when I was going to high school and I would cook and make little deserts for the little kids when it was time for them to eat and a lot of them would tell me that they loved my food and that was very encouraging to me. A lot of people see my passion for cooking and they appreciate my skills in the kitchen.

Guiding Light’s newest board member has only had the chance to briefly walk through the doors of 255 Division Ave. SE because of COVID-19. But Kyle Hinton has walked in the shoes of the men who seek recovery and reconnection through the programs offered by the Heartside nonprofit – and he knows the importance of shining a light.
… Kyle needed a tutor for “just about every class but reading” at Grand Rapids Community College, but found himself getting into healthier routines, attending support groups, reading a lot and running. He remembers being late one night and running to a sobriety meeting playing old self-defeating tapes in his head about being unable to do anything right.
