What are you most proud of?
I am most proud of my life experiences and my growth as a human being. I have strived for greatness and have made it.

How have skills you learned in Youth2Youth helped you in your life
beyond Youth2Youth?
The skills that I have learned from youth to youth have given me the abilities to public speak, advocate in a positive and effective way as well as speak and perform professionally.

What advice would you like to give to today’s youth?
Strive for what you want in life and never let anyone tell you you can not get to that goal. You are someone and you are special. Remain focused on your goal and seek help if you are in need of it. Last but not lease wake up every day remembering that each second will never pass again so enjoy it and make it YOURS.
