MY WORK HAS NEVER BEEN ABOUT ME — IT’S BEEN ABOUT US.
My parents met in high school, and I was born shortly after. They were teenagers and their future was unknown. It was my mom’s cousin Ronnie who reminded my mom that while statistics said she would be a high school drop out - she could finish school and make herself and our family proud. Her cousin, Ronnie, is my namesake as he was killed by gun violence, just months before I was born.
