I was born and bred in Harlem, New York and studied Philosophy, Politics, and Law a Binghamton University. My passions are giving back, reading, and always looking to learn new things through various outlets. I was one of the original organizers of a successful march called fight for 15, Where I motivated fast food employees to march for higher wages. In everything I do I always hope to make people happy and to improve their lives in some shape or form. It is why I’m an Americorps member because service is deeply rooted in their mission and in my Life.
