I can say without pause, I have been through a thing or two in my life time but I refuse to allow those moments to define me. I am a sum of all my experiences and for that I am great because I own everything as it relates to me. All my experiences are contributing factor to my integrity and character. I am driven to be an agent of change for my/ our communities. At this point in my life I have three main goals and each contributes to eradicating generational poverty in Black/ African American communities. Through the use of Social Entrepreneurship, I plan to leave a legacy of sustainable programs we all can be proud of.
