I've always wanted to do something to give back to my home town of Pahokee, Florida. In the beginning, I thought the only way I could help or give back to my community was if I made a large amount of money. As I got older, I realized that one of the best things I could do for my community was to lead by example, and show people that you care about them.
I learned that the best way to do that was to give the people of Pahokee something they could believe in and be a part of, and until recently I had lost sight of that. It was a close friend who reminded me that all it takes is time, teamwork, and faith to make a change. I was very lucky growing up to have an abundance of love, and great support from my family, however I know some people aren’t as fortunate as I was. That is why I have dedicated myself to Hope For Pahokee with the intention to try and make a change for those in need.
