From Chicago To South Africa

My journey at Howard University has played a major role in my self discovery. This discovery was not easy and I have faced a lot of challenging times along the road. However, as a young man from Chicago I was afforded several opportunities I never thought that I would ever get to experience. I learned things I never thought I would learn and I traveled places I never thought I would be able to see. As I approach my final years at Howard University I was recently offered the opportunity to travel to South Africa with YAALI, and amazing fellowship here at the Mecca, on December 7th. With this opportunity I'll be given a platform to research the impact that HIV/AIDS and reconstruction of affordable healthcare had on the current generation of South Africa. As I pursue a career in the clinical field I truly believe this research will help develop skills that are necessary to better serve my community and other under served communities across the globe. Friends, family, and friends of family your support would mean a lot to me. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated and I thank you for your encouragement and support!
