“Stay Present. Let Go of Your Past. Design Your Future.”Have you checked your screen time lately! So often we spend time on social media looking at other people curate the best representations of their lives instead of making a plan for how we can live our best lives. My life changed when I committed to making my own adventures and watching others to learn how the pros work at creating a legendary life. I could only do this once I took time to get still to figure I who I was and who I wanted to be.

I had a blast speaking to Amazing High Schoolers from over 24 Baltimore schools about Mindfulness, Wellness, and Goal Setting on Feb 22, 2020 at the Gilman Black Alumni Leadership Institute! @thegbali is the absolute best! Thanks so much for inviting me!

These students come out every Saturday from 9-12 to learn life, study, and business skills that can help them reach their dreams right now and in the future! I was a part of the first cohort of GBALI in 2006 and it was amazing to be back home! So much thanks to Karlo Young @youngkarlo , Terrance Whitehead @thegbali , Kumasi Vines, and Rhonda Smith Wright @rdswright for being mentors and friends who inspire generations of students to follow their dreams and not let anything get in their way!  Grateful to carry the torch today and speak with some of Baltimore's finest!
