I am excited to ask you all to assist me with a new laptop. My laptop was damaged and is not working. I an an advocate in the Russell neighborhood addressing domestic violence, community violence, and gang violence. I am invested in people because someone was invested in me. I am twenty one years sober working in the same neighborhood that I was in twenty five years ago prior to my recovery. I believe that when you have been brought out of darkness it is your duty and responsibility to be a light for others. I volunteer with LMPD with young people who have been touched by the courts. I believe in the ability to change. The Russell Area is the face of Resiliency.
I have been blessed to work with amazing people and our work is being talked about around the country. I had the opportunity to speak to Solidead O'Brien from a Matter of Fact. I have spoken across the country and just returned from Quanitco Virginia where they explored my life story.
