My name is Nnaemeka "Meka". I am originally from Spartanburg, SC, but I've been in Rock Hill since '06. I graduated from Winthrop University in '10 with a B.S in Spanish. My favorite activities include: cooking (read eating), thrift shopping, and playing bingo.
I have known about Habitat for Humanity for several years, but I took serious interest in the housing program within the last year. When my best friend and her family moved into their Habitat home in Spartanburg during the Summer of '14, it was truly an inspiration.
I'd always been under the impression that the housing program was either for single mothers or the elderly, but after a little research, I found that that was far from true. I applied in January '15 ,received a denial letter in February '15, and signed my Family Partnership Agreement in June '15.
I am so grateful for this opportunity and am eager to become a Habitat homeowner.
