GIOVANNI DAVIS

PROGRAM MANAGER

"As a young man of color growing up in the world, there is a naivety that we lose as humans too early in life due to circumstances far too common for people like me who are far too young. As we grow older the naivety lost is the naivety we need to experience things in life that are vital to our growth, our ability to perceive things, and our ability to better manage and process our emotions. Having gone through a process of self-healing after intense experiences, on top of an emotionally charged 2020 year, I felt the need to dedicate my life to helping young men of color especially given the state of the country and the demand for help for the underprivileged youth. The highest form of human act is to inspire, and I'm serving my purpose doing the work I am doing here at IYT."
