What is your favorite quote? “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ― Barack Obama
What is a story or memory you have that sticks out from an L3 Event, Program or Workshop? My favorite memory was making TikToks with Doc T and the other girls after meeting different leaders in my community.
What have you learned through L3 that has made a difference for you? L3 taught me the importance of networking as it pertains to my career goals. Learning how to connect with people and form relationships ultimately helped me to progress as a leader.
Why did you choose to participate in L3? I chose to participate in L3 after my guidance counselor recommended the program to me. After looking through the website and discovering the sponsorship opportunities, I decided the program was a good fit for me.
What is a cause you're passionate about? My passion for helping others has always fueled me to be the change I wish to see in my community. For decades, arbitrary barriers within the field of business have hindered the economic prosperity of underserved communities. Sadly, I have witnessed the struggles that occur when a generational cycle of financial instability affects a community. I hope that understanding business will help me break the chains of financial instability that bar underserved communities from economic prosperity. Positively impacting my country by becoming a necessary proponent for change in my community will not be easy. Nevertheless, by cultivating my character, passion for helping the underserved, and ability through a college education, I will become the tsunami of effective positive change that I envision.
