The economy is so messed up. 90% of the time, you HAVE to know someone to even get an interview. I refuse to act an ass so I will keep building my brand and making entrepreneur moves. #AGrowingSoul #Entrepreneur #Poetry #Innovative

So it’s said that Aaliyah’s family didn’t approve of this movie. And their going to make it anyway? I don’t like this situation. I don’t even see a resemblance. She was 5 when Aaliyah passed. Y’all know Aaliyah is my girl….my idol. What are your thoughts?

I have completed 2 years of service work. Was it tough? Hell yea. Was it stressful? Hell yea. Were there times I almost gave up? Hell yea. Did I walk out on my students? HELL NO. I have learned so much about Chicago, CPS, life and myself in these past two years. And as I close this door to open up a new one, I know that I will continue to find ways to inspire and give back. I’m grateful for my experience with Citizen Schools and CPS as I have learned so much. Now this challenge to change the world is really about to get real…..but I’m ready it all. #AGrowingSoul #CloserToMyDreams #Motivation
