Raven is Campus Compact's College Renaissance Corps Houston Program Coordinator. She is based in Houston, Texas.
My name is Raven Cooper and I'm thrilled to introduce myself as the CRCorps Houston Program Coordinator. I'm originally from the vibrant city of Birmingham, Alabama. However, for the past few years, I've had the pleasure of calling Houston, Texas, my home.
One of the things that drew me to Houston was its incredible diversity. This city truly embraces people from all walks of life, and I'm constantly amazed by the rich tapestry of cultures and backgrounds that coexist here. As the Program Coordinator, I'm grateful for the opportunity to connect with individuals from various communities and contribute to their personal and educational growth.
Outside of work, I have a wonderful 4-year-old son who keeps me on my toes. He's an avid sports enthusiast and has an insatiable curiosity for all things tech-related. Exploring his interests together is always a delightful adventure.
When I'm not busy with work or spending time with my son, you can often find me surrounded by friends and family. I cherish those moments and believe in the power of strong connections. In my downtime, I also enjoy delving into the pages of non-fiction books, expanding my knowledge and perspective. Additionally, I have a keen interest in true crime podcasts, as they offer a fascinating glimpse into the human psyche.
As I pursue my MBA at Lamar University, with an expected graduation in December 2023, I'm excited to bring the skills and knowledge I acquire to the table. Working with Campus Compact and being a part of the College Renaissance Corps is an opportunity I cherish deeply. I've always had a passion for service and giving back to the community, and I'm eager to collaborate with all of you to push our mission forward.
I'm truly excited to jump into this role and make a meaningful impact on the lives of those we serve. Let's work together to revitalize service through education and create a brighter future for our communities.
Looking forward to getting to know each one of you and making a difference together!
