Hailing from north city of St. Louis, I am a mentor and life learner who aspires to dedicate my life towards the eradication of poverty. As a current graduating senior at DePaul University, I will earn a Bachelors degree in Sociology with a concentration in Law and a double minor in Economics and Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies this upcoming June. I aspire to one day serve as an Economic Foreign Service Officer for USAID as well as an UN Ambassador with the eventual goal of establishing non-profit community based organizations that will target to alleviate economic and social injustices. I went  abroad for the first time where I continued my Arabic studies in Meknes, Morocco as a Critical Language Scholar (CLS) and today I have maintained my Arabic studies and hope to reach fluency within the  next three years. This past summer I served as a prestigious Charles B. Rangel Scholar to the U.S. Department of State and attended classes at Howard University. In addition to my studies, I currently serve as the 2nd Vice President and Co-Social Action Chair for the Lambda Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. As a Jackie Robinson Scholar, Unilever Legacy of Leadership Awardee and active public servant in an intentional community on my campus, I have continued to give my time to further developing the aim for justice through constant service and community empowerment. Much of my life motivation can be attributed to Jackie Robinson’s motto, “a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” Thus I have and will always continue to serve as an agent for change.
