Changemaker of the Month Nomination

I am honored to be nominated as Changemaker of the Month on Mr. Devin Thorpe’s show, Your Mark on the World. You can listen to my interview here.

The St. Francis Neighborhood Center just posted this on their website and on Facebook. I cannot thank them enough for the life changing opportunities they have given me, and for their loyalty and support in my academic endeavors and my work throughout Baltimore City. Thank you to Mr. Kevin Apperson, Ms. Christi Green and Mr. Torbin Green. You have contributed tremendously to who I am today and the motivation I have moving forward. I will continue to work hard so that I can someday help the center reach new levels of success. Thank you for believing in me.
