What do you do and why do you do it?

I have been modeling for 5 years now and am a singer, songwriter, guitarist, actor, and much more! I have autism but I showed everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism, Asperger's Syndrome, or any other disability. We are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true and we can make a difference because we can all be independent everyday!

I am an Autism Ambassador because I spread the word out to the community about Autism Awareness. It benefits me to share it with everyone who wants to know about Autism Awareness and everybody will learn from it! As an autistic male model, I have been showing everyone that it doesn't matter if we have autism or any other disability, we are human beings and we can still make our dreams come true just like I did when I walked in 29 runway shows and host my new YouTube series SNEAKER JAMZ!

Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

I would see myself spreading more messages to the world about Autism Awareness and meeting new people and helping out organizations!

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 to spread the word out to the world about Autism Awareness! I would use it because I love to share my story experience to everybody for the benefit of the entire Autism community!

I competed in several local pageants as well as my high school pageant. When I was a Senior in high school, I was a Senior Model Rep for a local photographer. This is when the modeling bug hit me. I loved being in front of a camera where my fashion skills came out.  My goal is to be a catalog model, but if this does not work out, I would love to continue modeling as well as photoshoots."   What do you do and why do you do it? 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. I started modeling locally through a photographer friend who suggested I try out for the local fashion shows. This led me to several local runway modeling opportunities. 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. We're also talking about the well trained nursing staff who had to execute treatment plans for ill patients in hospitals and nursing homes. We're talking about the mental health counselors and therapists who coached people through a year of so much loss, restriction and isolation. We're talking about the administrative staff at hospitals, clinics and testing centers who kept everything afloat on the back end from patient services, insurance billing and scheduling appointments. We're talking about the janitorial staff that ke

Titans Of Tomorrow: #BlackBusinessesMatter The First Wave

  Image Credit It's no secret that people of color have been some of the greatest contributors to society in all facets of life. From the Dr. Kings and Malcom X's in the civil rights era to the Naomi Campbells and Tyra Bankses of the fashion industry to the Oprah Winfreys and Wendy Williamses of media and marketing, they have been hands down crucial to the world in every sense of the word. Yet, why are we in 2020 and still they have no peace? They've journeyed through the valleys and shadows of death to arrive at their accomplishments and successes, moving mountains and walking on waters of faith and dreams, but still have to say things like #BlackLivesMatter. Well, we recognize that people of color are not only iconic but essential. 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. This article sheds a little light on some black
