Akron Shero Karen Starr takes time to sit down with Zach and discuss community-building and how to create your own reality. Starr wears many hats in Akron and is a creative force to be reckoned with. She’s an author, interior designer, artist, musician and community organizer.
When it comes to community-building, it’s all about relationships to help one another achieve dreams. Starr is a founder of the Greater Akron Innovation Network for Sustainability (GAINS), which is dedicated to bringing people together to look at ways to make Akron neighborhoods healthier and more sustainable.
She believes that when everyone gets involved, we can then truly create our own reality, which is the foundation of community-building. The city of Akron has everything needed to create a bright future, we just need to come together to make our dreams come true.
