It seems that negativity is inescapable, especially today. There is not enough positivity spoken or written to guide, lead, motivate and uplift people who live in poverty towards implementing ways to change for the better.
Have you ever wanted to make some changes in your own neighborhood, or maybe a neighborhood you have driven through or lived in previously? Have you driven through an impoverished area (community) and then three to four blocks past that area, you find a community where the flowers are blooming and sidewalks are well-manicured. Personally, I have always questioned why it happens but as time went on, and my interest in how I could help make a positive impact, I began asking how does that happen?

Internet Poverty. Wow, I am mind blown. Who knew internet poverty was real in the USA? In a growing high-tech world, everyone should have and will surely need access to the internet now as well as in the future. I personally can attest to this. The pandemic boosted online shopping in necessities alone, from clothes to toilet paper. However, few companies gave thought about whether there would be anyone without internet access in this country. I myself am guilty of the assumption that the internet was accessible to everyone. Never would I have guessed that there weren't any people lacking a connection to the world when it was shut down.
Everything in the USA, in the world as a whole, is ever-evolving. The more research I did on the subject in partnership with First Ladies of Poverty Foundation, I had one major question: why doesn't everyone have high-speed internet service, and for some, more importantly a WiFi capable device? Many cannot afford the cost of high-speed internet service or the price of a smart device, in addition to the other daily costs of living.
