"Growing up in South Sacramento It was always my family who always motivated me to keep going in life. They are part of the reasons for me graduating from Valley High School and Alcorn State University. Also the community I surrounded myself with pushed me and motivated me to become the person that I am. The way that I look at life is that everyone has a purpose in life and my purpose is to create change in the systems and impact lives. I just love seeing scholars conquer their challenges and become successful in their life."
