“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
My life is a song that must be sung, "We Make Our Living by What We Get, Our Lives by What We Give," singing a beautiful melody that touches the lives of many. I aspire to empower my family, sharing knowledge obtained from my business education. Besides, they deserve to be rich, too! The support they have provided over the years has been invaluable. I plan to inspire inner-city youth by serving as an instructor of life-skills programs and being a living example that it is not your environment, but the power of persistence that leads to success. I desire to bring joy to others with my infectious laughter and emotive vocal music as an entertainer and a recorded music executive. Even when I become world-renowned and my voice resounds, not only on the world stage but also on life's stage, I would like people to remember my melody, my song, and to applaud enthusiastically for a job well done.
