I am born and raised in Milwaukee, and I returned after completing my undergraduate degree at Howard University in Washington, D.C. I teach social studies at Destiny High School here in the city and coach a co-ed dance team through the Boys and Girls Club.
Home is where the heart – and my loved ones are. Aside from that, Milwaukee is a great city to explore and it is always a good time when uncovering a new spot to patronize.
La Masa Empanada Bar on Brady Street…so tasty!
Summerfest, of course!
I always want to surround myself with changemakers and innovative, like-minded people who are willing to do the work in our community. Echelon is an organization that carries out the Christian mission of the Salvation Army, and I couldn’t be more fortunate to be a part of that.
So many families in our city live in poverty for a multitude of reasons that are oftentimes out of their control. Our generation can help by exploring and educating our community on the factors that may cause poverty and its effects, and as a unified front with the help of technology, we can create and expose resources that can aid many of these families and possibly prevent poverty and homelessness in future generations.
