Since I was in high school I have been rethinking and developing every organization or business for which I have worked. I thrive on creative energy and I believe that every profession requires vision and inspiration in order to improve and adapt to twenty-first century needs.
My college career has been a study of the American city. With a self-designed major, I have taken classes in seven disciplines including political science, history, religion, art history, rhetoric, English and leadership studies. I also developed a thesis on the history of a highway in Richmond that will attempt to incorporate all that I have learned along the way.
On campus, I have supported programs related to urban agriculture, ride sharing, service-learning and men's development. Off campus, I have interned at two non-profit organizations: Church Hill Activities and Tutoring and Partnership for Smarter Growth.Through these internships I developed a passion or urban education and sustainable urban design.
My current passions are related to engaged education, men's development and youth empowerment. I have developed this passion while leading multiple groups of college students to New Orleans, educating new brothers in my fraternity, and co-leading the inaugural CHAT summer camp for high school students in Richmond. I also attended three conferences in the past year to further my understanding of topics: Today's College Man, CCDA, and Urbana.
