Why Darryl Chooses BTN?
I chose BTN for the networking opportunities which not only presented assistance with finding employment, but also the opportunity to learn directly from a number of the very people who’s articles and books I’ve read and referred to as references. BTN provides me with an artistic family who can understand me, my dreams and struggles in ways my biological family simple could not. I also chose BTN as a place where I could concretely make a contribution with some security that whatever impact I was able to have would seep back into the Black/African American community in a positive way and reap positive results. I chose BTN and BTN has wrapped its arms around. It possesses so many resources in the form of live bodies.
