“I am from not caring about school and getting into fights to getting As and Bs and using my smart mouth as a tool. Who knew I could start a non-profit and help hundreds of other underrepresented youth have the opportunities I've had. Now I know how to use my outrage at injustice to advocate for change, testifying at City Council, the State Legislature and in front of funders and community leaders. ”

“I was bbqing in the park with my brothers recently. Some neighbors thought our music was too loud and, instead of talking to us directly, called the police. When the police came, they asked me what kind of trouble I was up to. When I said I am in college, they wouldn’t believe me until I showed them my student ID. We work hard in Momentum Alliance to break down these kinds of stereotypes and prejudices and build hope, so we can all achieve our personal, educational, professional and leadership goals.”
