Passion,Creativity and Purpose, are the three themes that have become the pillars of my life. From the youthful days of day dreaming about sci-movie plots in the passenger seat of my mom's car to figuring out shortcuts in videogames. I’ve realized that growing up I have always been a dreamer and a problem solver.In middle school I started my first venture, I along side of a good friend learned how to code and started a private runescape server, a minature version of the MMORPG that only focused on combat gameplay. Where everyone thought we were nerds for playing, later resulted in convincing my entire 6th grade class to join in. In highschool, I formed a 2,000 dollar a week candy business, from starting with only 1 box of welches fruit snacks. After 2 months, I gathered a team of 12 students and sold an average of 25 candy boxes a day.
Since then my experience in college has only enhanced my innate entrepreneurial abilities. With a lack of entertainment for multi-cultural students in Plattsburgh, I felt the desire to fill in that need. Originally being a philosophy major and now public relations, I’ve learned how to place myself in the role of the consumer,plan smarter as well understanding how to build a strong brand. These learned skills and new found interest in event planning propelled me to produce entertainment events for various communities in and out of college.
I’ve always enjoyed producing events because I have felt that I had the creative ability to curate as I pleased but more importantly because of the impact I’ve had on my attendees. Whether it be a concert bringing a popular Afro-caribbean artist or even my latest festival venture where I create a street theme experience for talented pan-africans to showcase their creative work within the realms of music,food and art. The impact and the joy on people’s faces is what keeps me going. To hear “ Wow, I’ve always drew paintings when I was younger .. I’m going to start again, or I’ve always been shy to sing but this event inspired me again.” These are the moments that keep me going and pushes me in coming up with innovative solutions that will solve the needs of my community. From event planning to tech, I have no doubt I'll get the job done.
