Since September of 2017, Ana Ramirez has worked out of the Mattie Rhodes Center in the Historic Northeast as an Americorps VISTA – which is essentially the domestic version of the Peace Corps. For this week’s episode of Kansas City’s Northeast Newscast, host Paul Thompson sits down with Ramirez to discuss how she got involved with the program, her impressions of Kansas City and the Historic Northeast, and what projects she’s been working on during her first few months in the area.
Ramirez, who is bilingual, also penned a message for any Spanish-speaking residents with ideas for community projects in the Historic Northeast. It reads as follows:
“Si tiene idea de proyectos en la comunidad o quire compartir sus opiniones o preocupaciones de su vecindario, conetactame, Ana Ramirez. Me encantaria hablar con ud.”
Translated to English:
“If you have ideas about projects in the community or want to share your opinions or worries about your neighborhood you can contact me, Ana Ramirez. I would love to speak with you.”
Ramirez’s email address at Mattie Rhodes is firstname.lastname@example.org. She can also be reached by phone at (816) 241-3780.
