Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator
Hi my name is Hadiya Bakar and I am excited to be the new Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator! I am not ashamed to admit most of my personal philosophies come from the old turtle in Kung Fu Panda. You cannot convince me that my British accent isn't top tier. Long walks in the snow with our three cats gets me through these long Minnesota winters.
