When Life Gives You Lemons
How would you turn a negative situation into something positive?
I have lived long enough to know that most things work out as they should. AND you should always have a plan B!
What and/or Who inspired you to follow your dream?
Most recently - after working at The Rose for about 6 months, and hearing the terrible statistics for African American women and surviving breast cancer I decided to head The Rose's initiative to bring the message of early BC detection and survival to the AA community. After 5 years we have raised over $140,000 for mammograms for uninsured AA women. More women than ever know about the Rose and our mission to save lives with annual mammograms.
The seasoned black teachers and principals who mentored me when I taught school (so long ago) inspired me to help a community that gave me so much. I am blessed.
