What is the unmet social or environmental need you intend to address?

Alongside the support of co-founder, Jhon Vlades they intend to disrupt the school to prison pipeline by recreating the narrative surrounding individuals with a criminal history.

What most excites you about participating in the Impact Entrepreneurship Fellowship?

I’m most excited about two things. The first, being a part of a like-minded community. Second, finding the soil (resources) to  root myself in a journey that I know is so much bigger than me.
