“I believe I have found my purpose; and through my work I express my passion. I enjoy engaging in relevant, courageous conversations with youth and adults regarding race relations, self-awareness, self-help, and self-growth. Most importantly, my conversations are filled with humor and relevant content that leaves others with the yearning to seek their own purpose.”
