Born and raised in Detroit, MI, I’ve spent the past 33 years enjoying every moment it has to offer. Throughout my K-12 educational experience, my goal was to get out of my house and go on to university, where I felt I’d finally get that opportunity to grow and become a better version of myself. Sure enough, in 2003, I left my then home of Southfield and headed toward East Lansing, where I began my collegiate experience at none other than Big Ten university – Michigan State. GO GREEN!!!
At MSU, I spent six years accumulating two Bachelor’s of Arts – one in Journalism and the other in Spanish, while also becoming certified in Secondary Education. Not only did I succeed academically, I also spent time being active in and around campus. I spent four of those years as a Resident Mentor in the dorms – creating programs within the dorm and around the campus, as well as facilitating group training sessions and helping other scholars grow to their potential. During that time, I participated in creating social events with the University Activities Board, participated in diverse programs on campus such as the V-Day Program and the Unity Project; And actively participated in meetings and discussions with both the North Campus Black Caucus, W
omen’s Council and Respecting Individuals on Neutral Grounds.
Along with all of the on campus activities, I held a part time job at Best Buy, which allowed me to realize my passion and knowledge of technology, especially Apple products. I have spent the past 9 years teaching in the city of Detroit at two different charter schools. Currently I work for Old Redford Academy Preparatory High School and teach programs and sessions to various customers at an Apple Store.
I am currently in my final semester at Michigan State University finishing my Master’s of Arts in Educational Technology. Once in awhile, you can catch me watching some television, listening to music or editing and creating movies or photo illustrations. I enjoy traveling and have studied abroad in Quito, Ecuador and spent two weeks traveling through Israel.
My motto – Love the life you live and live the life you love!
