Lead Organizer - Gwinnett

Why do you to this work?

I feel that so many people just are not informed on what is going on in our state and country, and they do not know their rights. Society has a blind eye and we are here to open their eyes and help them see the real of things. Also so many people are misinformed and need our encouragement and knowledge to this work that we do. Last, so many people fought for what we are doing and we are part of a bigger movement for change in 2018.

How has this work changed you?

I have learned so many new things and take more pride in the work that we do. It has made me be into politics a lot more than I was in 2014 when I started this work with NGP.

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?

Yonce, and Aaliyah. I think that these are two great artists and Asiyah got shorted on her life just when she was blowing up. They make great inspirational music and workout music for me. I still listen to “Age Ain’t Nothing But a Number” all the time!!
