Get to know Ammara:

What do you actually do all day long?
I support our program team in data visualization and analysis, and in systems thinking and learning. I help the organization think about how we can improve our programs, our internal relationships, and our external relationships through the use of data, through the lens of diversity and inclusion, and by asking questions that help guide our team in making decisions that benefit the children of Detroit.

What is the best part of your job?
Getting to work alongside really dedicated people who care about the kids! It’s a blessing to know that my team is committed to improving their work, and thinking about how to push the boundaries in community service and philanthropy.

Favorite flavor of ice cream? 
Mint chocolate chip. Hands down.

What music are you streaming?
I'm more of a podcast girl!.

Why do you love where you live?
Canton, MI is extremely diverse! And it’s a great place for good halal food. It’s also close to other cities including Detroit, Ann Arbor, and Dearborn, so nothing is far.
