What do you do and why do you do it?

 I’m living my dreams, I want others to know that they can do it too! I do what I do, to set the example and then lead by it as living proof. My purpose is to help minorities move the marker in equality for all.

How does what you do benefit others?  

I grew up privileged and did not even know it, my mother would remind me. I became aware at a young age of how blessed I was. I knew I wanted to help others in need, in 2017 I created “Do the right thing”. An independent initiative, shedding light on different non-for-profit organizations. 

Describe your career journey and how it led you to where you are now.

 I started out like any other kid from the neighborhood. Singing and dancing with friends and family and than began to train in school. After graduating high school I started college but ended up dropping out to pursue my career full time. I was an extra on set when I got upgraded to actor, I was randomly picked to deliver a line.


Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

The sky is the limit for me! I plan on taking my humanitarian work overseas, it is the work I am the proudest of. 

If you could have one superpower to help you further your purpose, what would it be and why? How would you use it? 

 My superpower would be the see the future, I would use it to avoid what would not serve me well in my life and career.
