The message behind the foundation is what made me feel honored to be awarded such an award. My father had been imprisoned majority of my life and hardly ever financially supported me since he was constantly absent.

Seeing that there were people in the local community who wanted to make sure I succeeded in my mission, to expand my knowledge, filled my heart with joy. I myself had dreamed of being an inspiration to individuals with similar circumstances I grew up in.


I graduated with my bachelors of Science degree becoming a first generation college graduate. Now I’m working in my field at a Veterinary clinic helping animals and promoting public health. 

Breaking Chains Making Amends and the members have been a true blessing to me, spiritually and financially.
