I started my nonprofit organization while still in highschool - 17 years old. This began because of my best friend who has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. I’ve known her since we were in kindergarten- and now we are 21 years old. It started out with a dream, and a fight for inclusion and representation ( and a pencil ).
Now, I wear a few hats: author, illustrator, creative designer, advocate, and motivational speaker. I love creating our comic books that feature local children with disabilities. If I'm not drawing and writing, I'm coordinating events that create a safe and accessible safe for children with disabilities.
Motivational speaking is another passion of mine. Encouraging all generations that age doesn't put a limit on your dreams. Speaking locations include (pre-pandemic) - Stockon University, various New Jersey Rotary clubs, Vineland and Hammonton Highschool, and other local clubs and organizations. Now? Many, many Zoom link meetings ;).
Creativity and Philanthropy mixed together are a force to be reckoned with! This force has conjured awards like F4Y Humanitarian Award, New Jersey Heartland Hero, 30 under 30 Trendsetter, and FRNJ's 30 Under 35 Top Young African American Leaders in South Jersey.
I’ve been featured on Forbes, Upworthy, Verizon Media ( In The Know ), Beautiful News, TodayShow.com, Woman’s World Magazine, and many other publications.
