What racial, ethnic, cultural community or communities do you identify with?
When and how did your family come to the United States? Where were you born?
As far back as I can recall, my family was born in America. I was born in Newark, NJ.
What are the strengths and challenges of being Black/African American?
Strengths: We are so amazing that the people in power have literally done everything possible to keep us down.
Challenges: We aren't united as we should be.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Graduating from college twice. That was awesome.
What is one thing you learned or appreciate from your family growing up?
Knowledge is power.
Do you speak your family's native language? Why or why not?
What advice do you have for the younger generations in your Black/African American community?
Don't fall for the bs. Read and learn about how beautiful and amazing your ancestors really were.
What gives you the greatest joy in life?
Being anchor-free (Having no obligations to anyone or anything).
Are there any projects you have created that you'd like to share and promote?
And Still We Rise is a podcast I created to highlight Black Excellence during the Covid-19 era.
