-Natalie Shirley, President
I am currently enrolled at OSU-OKC to complete my A.A.S in Crime Victim/Survivor Services. This will give me the foundation to start working as a victim’s advocate. I also volunteer with Beautiful Dream Society (BDS), a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to fighting exploitation, instilling value, and empowering vulnerable people worldwide. I have worked over 150+ hours with BDS. I have also completed close to 60 hours of additional service learning hours with the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board as an intern. There I was able to learn more about the juridical side of what victims of crime endure. I will soon volunteer with The Spero Project, a Food Co-Operative which serves families in the Lyrewood Community and Tulakes Elementary School in Northwest Oklahoma City. With the Spero Project, I will be able to work directly within the community to assist those that live in our under-resourced neighborhoods.
