What are you passionate about?

Community activism and volunteerism

What does Do Space mean to you?

Do Space is a place to stretch my mind.

What have you been able to accomplish at Do Space?

I have been able to add a home school experience that my son Zain would not be able to have otherwise. I have been able to increase my knowledge on anything and everything 3D technology.

In the spirit of the “Humans of New York” photo series and social media phenomenon, Do Space is inspired to work with staff and volunteers to create a “Humans of Do Space” series that shares the stories of our members, volunteers, users and staff. The goal of this effort it to capture the people that are using the space and how it affects their lives. What does it allow them to do? What does it allow them to make? How are people using the space to overcome obstacles and get things done?
