I'm studying right now so I can be your doctor. Invest in the future of Black health when you donate to my scholarship fund.

Before I shared wellness with the community, I started with myself. Your donation to this fund is an investment in the health of my entire community.

Every day I hone my skills so that I can be among the top Black physicians and psychologists in the world. I'm counting on your generosity to help me get there.

When I hear the phrase “The American Dream” I think of the plight of my ancestors. For many Black students, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) serve as a haven. It's a place that I proud to call home. HBCUs filled a void when Black people weren’t allowed access to a quality education. I reflect to a time when being educated was revered in the Black Community.

After spending seven years learning outside of traditional education, I applied for readmission to Xavier University of Louisiana. I am an aspiring physician and psychologist. Xavier has always been my first choice for my undergraduate degrees. I had to leave everything I knew when Hurricane Katrina paid my home a visit in 2005.
Though many people see college as another way to accumulate debt, it is my lifeline. Spring semester 2013 I lived just above poverty and was homeless for a short period of time. I had to pay all of my education expenses out of pocket. In spite of my circumstances, I still managed to pass all of my classes with high scores. Your generous donation will not only help me pay for my education, but also help me raise the bar for young Black Men who follow me.
