“I was born and raised in this area and I understand the challenges there were growing up as a minority. There were many obstacles that came along the way and facing challenges that no one could guide me to understand what I was going through.

Providing them with experiences they would not have the opportunity in the usual circumstances. Understanding that I formed a board of members and created a group named S.O.U.L. Saving Our United Leaders."
