When I look back at my life, I realize that the struggles and challenges I faced as a child are part of what pushed me to achieve the successes I have today. But nobody should have to suffer the stigma of being an “inner city child” the way that I did, and that’s why I
want to give back to the communities that once fostered me. Through this foundation, my dream is to ensure that these kids, kids like my own seven siblings, can grow up in a supportive environment with easy access to career resources and education.
When I was younger, nobody ever told me what I could become if I put my mind to it. Now, I’m creating pilot programs for those with less opportunities in life so that they can follow their dreams the way I never knew I could.
