stdClass Object ( [message] => One story about Mama Dip really influenced my life: Before I got to Blue Ribbon Mentor-Advocate, she met with a group of mentors and program leaders. One of them referenced an aphorism that was just being popularized in the early 90s, asking her “Ms. Council, don’t you think it takes a village to raise a child?” Mama Dip responded “Yes, but the village is not a stranger.” I was told this story after I was hired and Mama Dip’s words of deep wisdom became one of my core principles. The village is not a stranger. Whether in mentoring or in politics, I believe that being in community needs to precede being of service.
