Hi I’m Donvontae Smith and I’m TTF’s new Trail Ambassador!
I’m excited about being able to work with TTF because I’m getting a lot of hands-on experience by working on the Tacony Creek Park trail, and I am giving back to the city of Philadelphia in a positive way. It is a different experience than I’m used to, and the amount of knowledge I can obtain from this position is limitless. This six month fellowship will make a big impact on my life and my future. In the month that I’ve been with TTF, I’ve learned a lot about the history of the trail and also about our partners that help keep TTF going.
A little about me: in my spare time, I enjoy being in the park with my family and friends, so it’s extra important to me to do all that I can to help maintain the trails and parkways. Looking to the future, I hope to go back to school, and at some point, come back to working for the city.
