My Story

Growing up in a community thirsting for change, I confronted hardships and heartaches at an early age, marked by the profound loss of my father. Witnessing my mother navigate through struggles to provide for me while prioritizing my future above all else ignited an unwavering determination within me. This determination fueled my quest to defy the odds in my community — to graduate high school with honors, enter college, and ultimately pursue a Ph.D. I seized every resource available, participating in the early college program, and engaging in multiple internships. Surrounding myself with like-minded individuals helped me showcase my skills and compete at my best. Amidst receiving over 40 football scholarship offers in my senior year, a different calling emerged during my college football career. Despite the opportunities, I felt an innate desire to pay forward the blessings I received. This led to the creation of RETIREMOMSSOS—a growing nonprofit aimed at aiding single parents, the unhoused, and the less fortunate. Mya upbringing taught me invaluable lessons, guiding me through life's obstacles, leading me to realize the importance of extending a helping hand. Now, I’m driven to give back and create change, one community at a time, just as I yearned for in my upbringing. RETIREMOMSSOS seeks to empower future generations to surpass my own achievements. I am committed to breaking the cycle of enduring hardship by offering support and fostering a community driven by compassion.
