Meet Team 1: Surveys and Pain Points- Small Business & Startup Stakeholders
Team Members: Logan Singerman, Becky Obro, Mariah Boria
Logan Singerman is in his last semester at UConn, obtaining a Master's in Public Administration (MPA). Logan is currently the Director of Community Partnerships and Communications at SINA, as well as the co-owner of the Hartford Bride. He organizes volunteer events and facilitates resident-led community projects such as playgrounds, murals, and community gardens. Logan previously served as a Director of Outreach at a homeless outreach center and also an AmeriCorps VISTA.
Becky Obro grew up in West Africa, where she realized the importance of empowering others with resources and skills to make them more independent. Becky was inspired to start her own business in 2017 as she saw that entrepreneurship is one of the keys to reducing poverty, unemployment, and many other societal issues. Becky’s business, CHOP GHANA (literally meaning “eat” or “taste”) delivered packed lunches and catering services to offices and other functions. Through this, Becky was able to employ 10 young people in Ghana.
Mariah Boria, an undergraduate student at UConn, will also be joining Team 1.
