How do you use your passion to illuminate change in the world?

I have a genuine love and appreciation for humanity and diversity. My passion is helping people become better versions of themselves. I do so by ministering to people, sharing my testimony, and inspiring others by leading by example. I have used my platforms to not only uplift but also to serve as stepping stones for others to achieve success. I am a firm believer that working together and supporting people is the best way to dissipate the negativity that exists in our world.

If you could leave one lasting Impression on others what would it be and why?

I would leave the impression that the only way to achieve greatness is to live a life of service. Martin Luther King Jr. is quoted saying, "Everybody can be great because anybody can serve...You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." I can honestly say that the reason God has blessed me so abundantly is because I have dedicated my life to being of service to His people. I want them to have the same fullness in their hearts when they realize that their service makes a positive change in the world.
