What do you do and why do you do it?
I am the founder of Persistence is The Key! A Nonprofit Organization. As for my occupation, I am an attorney.
How does what you do benefit others?  
Well. Persistence is The Key is an education-focused nonprofit. Our goal is to assist the next generation in obtaining their educational goals. Recently we kicked off our laptop giveaway.
Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now.
Well. When I graduated high school I planned on becoming a medical doctor concentrating on sports medicine and my first semester in college after meeting with the pre-med advisor and reviewing the pre-med required courses I changed my mind I am not a math and science person. I originally expressed interest in law school during my second year in college after having a talk with my Dad. He thought it was great that I wanted to attend law school because of course my Dad is a lawyer too. After graduating college I spent a couple of years working in sports media and marketing. I have worked for ESPN, Fox Sports Net and CBS Radio to name a few of the media companies I worked at. It was fun and I enjoyed it but I wanted to do more and also I was not going to take the traditional route a lot of reporters take until they get that big break in journalism. Also, believe or not I actually had a time in my life that I wanted to become an actress.
What are your goals?
More speaking engagements, hopefully, more opportunities to work in tv as a legal correspondent or something else. I’m open to fresh ideas.
What are your inspirations?
My parents. I am able to pursue my education and everything else because of the investments they made in my life. I consider it a blessing to be their child. I truly hope they are proud of me and everything I have done thus far.
If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it?
Lol! The ability to read minds. That superpower would help me in business and other areas of my life.

Currently, I am a Cosmetologist assistant and makeup artist. My plan is to one day be a full-time model, doing hair and makeup on the side.

Modeling for me is all about the presentation, the presentation of hair, makeup,

Titans of Tomorrow: Medical Professionals Creating Change

  In today's world, we've all witnessed the immeasurable importance of medical professionals in society. After a daunting year of near apocalyptic horror, with all of Earth falling prey to the treacherous pandemic, Covid-19, it's undeniable that we would not have made it through without the medical professionals in the world. We're not just talking about the doctors leading the charge in pathology, immunology and laboratory research.

Yet, why are we in 2020 and still they have no peace?

Warriors of their time, valiantly battling racism, discrimination, oppression, poverty, the black and brown prison pipeline, police brutality and more, they stand tall as true Titans of Tomorrow.
