THE IMPORTANCE OF GIVING BACK

My philanthropic work stems from my belief of giving back to the community that defined and shaped me. Early in my childhood, I witnessed my mother, Alisa Young, volunteer on a daily basis at the local recreation center in Norfolk, VA. for more than ten years. I knew from that moment that life wasn't about taking and receiving selfishly but about giving yourself to others for the betterment of that person.

Upon my graduation from Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk, VA., I was awarded over eight academic scholarships which allowed me to attend Old Dominion University (ODU).


In 2004, I became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.


By 2005, I graduated from ODU with a BS in Chemistry and an MS in Environmental Engineering. I then relocated from Virginia to California to begin my professional career with Johnson & Johnson (J&J).
