My Brother's Keeper

Jordan Patterson

2019-20 MBK Fellow

Newburgh Free Academy West


If you could use 2-3 words to describe MBK, what would they be?

MBK is a about a positvity, safety, and growth.  


How has being involved in MBK impacted you?

MBK has impacted me by helping me gain a better perspective on life through the presentations in Albany at the MBK Symposium where they talked about making good choices. They also said purposely doing bad in school is not going to get you to a better place. There are smart students that do not put the effort in because it may not be cool.


What do you look forward to most as a 2019-20 MBK Fellow?

I look forward to making a positive change in my environment.
