I was born and raised in the small town of Kankakee. As a child, some of my fondest memories were visiting the city with all my family. I enjoyed it so much that I knew one day I would want to move to Chicago. I am looking forward to getting to know the city better and make new memories.
I grew up in an environment where many people did not have high expectations for the youth in our community. I believe that every child deserves the opportunity and expectation that there is no limit to what they can achieve. With the right tools and motivation children can accomplish anything.
