Hello, my name is Micheily Mercado and I am the Social Service Coordinator for McGuire Gardens located in Camden, New Jersey.
I was fortunate enough to receive this position as I have always been passionate about giving back to the city that helped me become who I am today. Being born and raised in Camden I grew up learning about social injustices that occur on a daily basis when it comes to its citizens and most importantly the academic institutions. I knew that obtaining a college degree was my way of setting up the tools I needed in order to do my part.
I am now in my third and final year of my Social Work Master’s Program with Rutgers University and am excited to see what I can contribute within the Better Tomorrows team.
