Hudaifah Pennington of St. Clair Superior

How you were involved in MyCom – I participated in one summer program with St. Clair Superior MyCom and was active in fundraisers for the youth center.

High School – Horizon Science Academy 

College – The University of Akron 

Graduation Year – I expect to graduate in 2022

What was a lesson you learned while in MyCom that has helped you in life? 

A lesson I learned from MyCom is that no matter what household someone is from or hardship someone is going through, having a get together to help the community always puts a smile on anyone’s face and warmth in their heart.

What is a piece of advice you would give to MyCom youth today?

Learn as many things about your community that you can and help others as much as possible because later down the road they will return the favor and help when you need it the most, life is about all the people you know.

Have you continued to be connected to MyCom and in what capacity?

I don’t contribute to MyCom much any more since I have moved away from the neighborhood and am full time in the National Guard.  I do come back and help with special projects or events if I’m asked.

What do you hope to be doing in 2-3 years?

In 2-3 years I will still be doing what I am doing now; taking class at the University of Akron and working full time in the National Guard as a military vehicle mechanic.


  • “MyCom Youth Development Initiative aims to engage via education, such amazing out-of-school opportunities as they recognize that youth who are bullied are more likely to feel disconnected from school."

  • "MyCom has extended hundreds of youth exceptional opportunities to grow, expand their knowledge and express their voice in so many ways. I can honestly say that the youth are not the only ones who are learning, growing and having wonderful exposure opportunities. This adult is a beneficiary of countless blessing as well."

    MyCom Coordinator
