Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice. Proverbs 31:8-9

I believe there’s a purpose for things that happen in our life. Some how, some way, every intersection and crossroad we experience will help lead us on our journey. I’m constantly trying to find my voice and discover the purpose God has placed over my life. I have a passion to serve, a desire to inspire the next generation, and a hope to see liberty and justice for all.

I’m a (retired) cop’s daughter; a product of Baltimore; a graduate of a suburban school system; a person who’s tasted food and housing insecurity; a former entrepreneur; a champion for bringing injustice to light. I don’t know where or how God will use me but feel a tug — a guiding push — to get more involved in my community and give back.

Part of my desire to “blog” about my life is to document my journey and my pursuit to leave this world a better place. Although I don’t have a road map — and tend to take the road less traveled — I’m excited for what lies ahead.

I’ve been selected to participate in Open Buffalo’s emerging leaders program that prepares future community leaders with the skills and resources necessary to effect change in and throughout the city. I’ve also linked up with the Buffalo Urban League that helps and empowers individuals and families in underserved communities throughout Buffalo.

… Stay tuned.
