Greetings all, I am Glenda Duru, a native of Houston, Texas. I am of Nigerian Descent and truly love my Nigerian heritage. I received my bachelor’s degree in Social Work from Prairie View A&M University. Currently, I am completing my Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Houston. I have a long-term goal of going to Law School and receiving my JD. I am in love with every aspect of Social Work. I enjoy empowering people & communities.
I love working in the community, so most of my spare time is spent with my Girl POWER mentoring group for high school girls in the Alief Community. I am also a sorority girl and enjoy spending time with my sorority sisters doing community service. I enjoy spending time with my friends, family and going to church. Another important part of me that I care about is dance. I love the sound of music and enjoy dancing to Nigerian Music, both old school and new school.
I am very excited to join the IAC as the Houston Birthparent Outreach Worker. I am ready to make long lasting partnerships for IAC within the Houston Community and State of Texas.
