Humans of Community: Kelly Maveal on Connection

Humans of Community: Kelly Maveal on Connection

“I am connected to my nieces and nephew. I moved back to Michigan after college to really be closer to them and it was right around the time that my sister was giving birth and I’ve lived here since, so I’ve had this really sweet opportunity to watch them grow up. We have this special bond. When I don’t have kids of my own, they’re the closest thing I have to it. And so it’s also nice because you can be the fun aunt who stops over and brings cookies and takes girl trips out and about, but then when bedtime comes around and the emotions start to come out, I get to say, ‘See you soon.’ So I’m really grateful to be an aunt. It’s one of the most special things in my life. They go to Ann Arbor schools, they live right down the street from Community so I’m seeing them all the time, oftentimes doing pickup, drop off, you know, impromptu dinners and barbecues in their backyard and going to soccer games. I see them all the time.”
