According to my younger siblings, I’ve reached “old lady” status with just a few hours before my 29th birthday. So before my memory goes, I figured I would spend a few moments clearing the air and answering the top “13” questions I constantly get online. 

  1. Where do I call home?  I could be cool and say I’m a resident of the world but that’s not where my pay stub gets delivered. Last month I moved from DC to the overcrowded New York City, more specifically --- I call Harlem home but only second to Philly. 
  2.  How do I make my coins aka where do I work? Well as a renaissance woman with student loans, one has to diversify her income streams. Full-time, I work as the Head of Youth Engagement and Skills for the Global Business Coalition for Education.  Part-time, I work as a strategist for both private and public entities who are looking to engage impacted communities. Also, every now and again, someone will pay me to talk or facilitate a training workshop.  
  3. Where do I find my passion? I find my passion in helping young people realize that they’re deserving of everything the world has to offer.
  4. What did I study in college? Well I graduated from Temple University and I majored in International Business, Legal Studies with a minor in Chinese and MIS (Management and Informational Systems)
  5. Would I ever consider going back to school? Yes, especially if someone else paid for it. I love learning, classroom discussions is my thing and I would probably go back for an MBA and MPA.
  6. Favorite place I’ve traveled so far? Hmmm, that’s hard to say but if I had to pick, it would have to be South Africa, the food, history, culture, and people were just amazing to be around and I wasn’t ready to come home.
  7. Where do I want to travel next? I haven’t really explored much of Latin America, I would love to spend some time there but I also hope to go back to parts of Asia before the end of the year. Will keep y’all posted!
  8. Biggest accomplishment to date? Finally giving myself permission to be great.
  9. Biggest Fear? Not meeting my own expectations.
  10. Best cheese steak place in Philly? Larry’s, Jims or Ishkabibble’s … I don’t trust anywhere else.
  11. Current Book? I’m currently listening to “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” By Mark Manson on Audible and reading “The Fourth Industrial Revolution” by Klaus Schwab.
  12. Celebrity role model? Other than Beyonce?...well I’m a huge fan of Mellody Hobson, haven’t met her yet but I’ve literally read everything about her and watched all her speeches at least 5 times each.
  13. One thing you want to learn? I can’t pick one, so Chinese and French.
