Meet Our 2016 Fellows - Deanna Jenkins

We have an amazing group of Fellows joining the NLC family this year, and we’re excited to learn more about the issues closest to them and why they love calling Philly “home.”

What are you most looking forward to when it comes to the NLC Institute? 

Deanna: I am really looking forward to getting to know all of the Fellows. Each individual brings a unique perspective and I believe we all have a lot to learn from each other. I am also looking forward to the trainings and opportunities to learn new skills and enhance my current strengths. 

What are the issues closest to your heart?

Deanna: Mental health awareness! I look forward to the day that we can remove the stigma about mental health altogether and increase access to resources that address both mental health and overall health and wellbeing.   

Describe your ideal “Philly day.”

Deanna: Brunch at Sabrina’s Café, exploring the amazing museums here in the city, and shopping in downtown Philly.

What do you love most about Philly?  

Deanna: Reading Terminal!
