What do you enjoy the most about having your organization?

“What I enjoy most is being able to see the smiles on homeless people’s faces when they receive the bags. That really gives me the motivation to keep helping the community. It makes me want to do even more!”

What does your ideal weekend involve?

​​My ideal weekend is hanging out with my friends, watching movies, or catching something on Netflix. I also love to eat lots of food, play 2k, make TikToks and on Sundays, take naps!

We all want to change and improve our world. What is the most important thing that you would change or fix today with the snap of your fingers? 

This is a great question because if we don’t sit down and have conversations and acknowledge how the world really is, then it will continue to carry on as is, going downhill! The most important thing that I would change is the inequality in our society. I feel that if we all had equal access to resources such as health care, education, employment, training, etc., then the world would be more balanced. With this access and equality, it would clearly have to be no racism, sexism, ageism, or any other ISM that you can think of!

What is your favorite MPOWERD product, and how do you use it? 

The Luci Pro Series is my favorite product because of the charging feature, but the light that I have engaged with the most for my Project I Am initiative is the Luci Original light which offers light options for those sleeping on the streets.
