  •  I have traveled to international countries, such as England, Ireland, and Italy, but none, as important as, my travel to Romania with Globe Aware.

It was a trip I took with the YMCA Black Achievers (now called the Teen Achievers). It was a college tour visiting HBCU’s (Historical Black Colleges...

  •                 Having lived overseas for the majority of my life, I’ve travelled extensively, to incredibly diverse regions of the world.
