What brought you to FRIENDS FIRST?
After spending several years in sales in the private sector, I realized my true passion was advocating for young people, helping them find their voice and using that voice for change.
How has a mentor impacted your life?
It was a mentor who encouraged me to leave the inner city of Detroit and study abroad in Japan. This opened my eyes to a whole new world and led me here to Colorado where I am living my dream.
