Summary

      It is my purpose in life to see that each of us make such a contribution as which would enable us to say that we individually and collectively are a part of the answer to the worlds problems and not part of the problem itself. It is my non-traditional innovative ideas about my community and my commitment to heal and to create a better future for myself and the next generation. My drive for collective over individual success is to enhance the whole community. I reside within the community and not outside of it. I see the assets and existing resources in South Los Angeles in a unique way, and have created a relevant vision to better my community through resources and employment.
