Having played for the NYC Parks Department in my youth, I developed a strong passion for tennis. At the Dave & Buster’s Jockathon event in 2009, I joined MTG since it seemed a great social forum to fulfill my passion and meet other members who shared a similar passion and belonged to the LGBT community.
Since MTG depends on the voluntary participation of its members for all activities and events, the members are vital to its success. Having volunteered, I have found the experience to be both challenging and rewarding. I have also been fortunate to have been embraced by some wonderful people in this group. Based on these experiences, I believe MTG has tremendous potential and I would love to assist in attaining these aspirations by becoming the Membership Director. As I strive to attain these lofty goals, I will never lose sight of the fact or take for granted that such a group exists which allows for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) tennis fans to share their passion by playing recreational and competitive tennis.
While there are a myriad of reasons why people elect to join MTG, my intentions as Membership Director would be to foster the development of our member’s talents, social activities, and more. I will strive to make MTG a nurturing environment to improve one another’s game and social experience. I will aim to create a fun and competitive environment while being receptive to implementing changes.
I hope to bring my creativity, talents, and professionalism to the Membership Director position to enhance the membership experience for everyone.
