My story begins as in Houston TX where I was born on November, 16, 1991 and was promptly adopted 3 days later. I was raised in a white family, in Olympia, WA. Between being quite literally the only black person in the entire city (at least it felt that way) and the family shenanigans of being homesechooled and running a farm, I can confidently say I have had quite the unique adoption experience. I am the first of 3 adoptees in my immediate family, and one of 14 in my extended family. I attended South Puget Sound Community College, where I got my start in guest speaking and presenting. I was the Senator for Diversity & Equity Affairs and worked in the Diversity Equity Center, hosting and organizing workshop on and off campus surrounding a variety of topics ranging from social issues to cultural competence. I have presented workshops at University of Washington-Tacoma, Evergreen State College, Student of Color Conference, Olympia High School and more. After graduating SPSCC with my A.A. I moved to Boston, MA to earn my degree in Entertainment Management where I graduated May 2016 with honors and several president’s award for program excellence and community work. I then moved to Los Angeles, to kick start my dream of putting together workshops to educate the adoptive community.
