The Downtown Ambassador Program provides a direct, on-the-street connection seven days-a-week. Ambassadors proactively engage in services such as assisting as safety escorts for workers and residents, helping visitors navigate their way to one of our many venues for an event, and giving suggestions for places to go and things to do. They also make sure the streets of downtown are clean and safe to enjoy.
We met up with Tina Myers to learn more about her and her role as a Downtown Safety Ambassador.
What is your favorite part of being a Downtown Ambassador?
I love the different kinds of people I get the opportunity to interact with and helping them find their way. Just having the chance to put a smile on someone’s face is my favorite!
What are some of your accomplishments so far?
With the Ambassador program in place, I have had the privilege and opportunity to get to know the homeless population and see their eyes light up when I provide them with information and they come to the realization that there is a way out of their current situations.
How long have you been in Orlando?
What is your favorite thing to do in Orlando or downtown?
My children and I always enjoy walking around Lake Eola Park and it’s beautiful scenery.
Tina can show you around downtown and answer any questions you may have. Say hi if you see her around.
