This year I had the opportunity to host the TEDx Youth Buffalo. It was so exciting to just host because before I was a speaker and I really enjoyed the opportunity of being on the other side. All the speakers were great and over all this years TEDx Youth was truly epic! Check out the pictures below!
I had the opportunity to speak at Medaille College undergraduate students about “The Blue Print To Success” This lecture was created to spark the motivation in students and encouraged them to also build their Blue Prints to success.
While at McKinley High School as I served as an educator with Say Yes Buffalo I had the chance to watch a group of young ladies grow and now go on to college.
I have worked with these girls in my Go Getta Girls program and got to work with each of them one on one. Seeing them all graduate was truly an exciting day for many. Salute The Go Getta Girls C/O 2015
On the first day of the New Year I was honored to receive an award from the S.E.N.S.E.S foundation. The S.E.N.S.E.S Foundation is a comprehensive tutoring and mentoring program for teens and young adults. The S.E.N.S.E.S. Foundations’ primary agenda is to revitalize our youth and encourage them to use their senses.
Thanks again to the Dr. Loyd and Dr. Curly Brown, Board of Directors and Gala Committee for considering me for this award and the opportunity to share with the youth of S.E.N.S.E.S.
If this was how my 2015 started I know it will only get better!

It was truly an honor to receive the Cornerstone Award Of Distinction from the Young Miss Buffalo Enrichment Program during their scholarship fundraiser dinner.

I had the great opportunity and honor to host the CAO Youth Power Summit. The event was a packed out event and the highlight of my day was introducing Eric Thomas The HipHopPreacher.
