- After teaching for ten years, I sat back and thought about what I had accomplished, what I had enjoyed doing, and what others had come to expect of me. Besides teaching, I found that my passions included community service, entrepreneurship, and technology.
As a result, I developed a personal mission statement:
I use technology to connect people to community impact.
Many people boast that if you do what you love, then you will never have to work a day in your life. I like the concept of “performing in my purpose.” Whenever I work with people, I use my personal mission statement as a personal litmus test to decide whether or not I am performing in my purpose.
I have now come to realize the responsibility I have to share what God has given to me with others. Because “my” purpose really is “his” purpose.

CUNY School Of Professional Studies
Business Management & Leadership
2013 - Present
Fueled by a desire to add skill to talent, I joined the CUNY School of Professional Studies Business Management & Leadership Program
: https://sps.cuny.edu/academics/graduate/master-science-business-management-and-leadership-ms. I began working on this degree while teaching as a Middle School English Teacher in the South Bronx, NY.
I also became a contributor to the CUNY Community Blog: https://cunysps.wordpress.com/author/ttrspks/.
School of Education
At the most prestigious Historically Black College & University in America, Howard University
(http://www.howard.edu/schooleducation/), I obtained my Masters of Education in Secondary Education while teaching High School English at schools in Washington, DC.
George Washington University
Bachelors of Arts in English, Minors in Creative Writing & Criminal Justice
After graduating from the Bronx High School of Science, the 2nd top high school in New York State, I moved to Washington, DC to attend the George Washington University. I studied English and Criminal Justice here, since I’ve always had a strong sense of justice. While on campus I was on the Executive Board of the Black Student Union. I contributed to planning monthly events as well as led the Black History Month Committee. We also brought famous persons such as MC Lyte and Dick Gregory to campus. I revived the Black student campus newsletter by calling it “The Black Ace” as well as the campus choir “The Voices of Inspiration.” I am pleased to say they are thriving today, over a decade since I’ve graduated. I helped run a historic campaign with a fellow African-American male student to become Student Association President of a dominantly white school. To this day, I remain connected to my university by representing my regional chapter as well as volunteering to plan my class’s reunion.
