Because of comic books, I fell in love with reading. I want to encourage other youth, especially boys, to read comic books. I am optimistic that through comic books youth (especially boys) will "like to read." I partnered with the non-profit organization, Academy of Critical Thinking (ACT), to visit schools with a fun, interactive and motivating program that centers around comic books.
Toys for Tots collects a ton of toys each year for kids. I learned that a majority of the toys are for young children and not the teens. So, I partnered with a non-profit entity, Academy of Critical Thinking (ACT), to form "Toys 4 Teens." This year will be my 2nd annual toy drive to benefit disadvantaged teens. Also, this year, we will focus on teens in Foster Care.
This was my inaugural Teens for Tot's toy drive to benefit disadvantaged youth in Metro Atlanta. I've changed the name to Toys for Teens, and the 2nd event will be held this holiday season.
As Youth Ambassador/Spokesperson for the Academy of Critical Thinking (501(c)(3)), I visit elementary and middle schools with a message that motivates youth, encourages personal development and takes a stance against bullying.
Because of my love for and fascination with animals, I volunteer at this amazing rescue center that is exclusive for exotic animals.
