I was born in Brooklyn N.Y. where I spent my early childhood in the New York City foster care system. During those years I endured physical & emotional abuse, rejection, and abandonment. Everyday I was bullied and made fun of and often though of killing myself. I used sports to escape from all the negativity and abuse in my life. It wasn't until my sophomore year in High School that I met a teacher that saved my life. Since then I've dedicated my life to Inspiring young people to know their worth, and to dare to dream big, Just as a teacher did for me. I taught public high school for 15 years and I now travel the country sharing my story of overcoming odds and never giving up on your dreams to high school assembles, youth retreats, basketball camps, college conferences, and corporate events.
