To work as an authentic leader in urban education and criminology, assisting in the social justice
mission to support the thriving development of diverse individuals, supporting the movement
towards successful futures for all, no matter what obstacles are placed along the path; to be a
beneficial presence, honor community transformational practices, shared vision, and serve

Restorative Justice & Empowerment in Education for vulnerable populations in the U.S.– experience, narratives, and healing.

Storytelling is reflection shifting the perception of our present view. I believe builds hope in our financial, egoistic, livelihood, health, spiritual beliefs,
world views, community, and relationships. We grow stronger, and go farther together.
