My Greatest Supporters

I am truly grateful for my loving family including my wife Karla, my mother Sophia, my sister Jennifer, and my mother -in-law Patsy. They supported and loved me unconditionally during my learning journey and without them, my accomplishment would not have been possible. In addition, I am thankful for my one and only learning community-Cohort 42!

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Spending our Executive Weekend’s together in person were short lived due to the pandemic. I really enjoyed seeing everybody’s lovely faces from my cohort and sharing many laughs during lunch time in the cafeteria. I will miss seeing everybody’s bright smiles and positive energy!

My Next Chapter

They say to change the world one must change themselves. With everything I gained and learned from my learning journey, I venture out to transform the world into a more equitable and inclusive place where everybody can be themselves and share their gifts with the world.

I am eternally grateful for My Tribe, Waka 42, and those who extended a little extra love and patience to me along the way. I love you all, deeply! This journey, this wisdom, this degree is in honor of my ancestors. I am them, they are me.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

Every moment spent in healing, growing, and sacred bonding with my new family, Cohort 42.

My Next Chapter

My journey forward remains deeply rooted in the equity and liberation work among my community. Most importantly, I will continue my personal journey, full of healing, growing, and learning. Self-love and preservation are my sacred priorities. Keeping my cup full, so that I may pour into others.
