Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid cook and someday I hope to open a restaurant with my two siblings — serving the delicious soul food that my grandmother was known for to honour her legacy. Some of my favourite dishes to make are chitterlings and greens.
Celebrating Black History Month is extremely important to me. I believe gaining an understanding of Black culture and improving education about Black history is crucial to diversity, inclusion and how we move forward together.
Growing up it was really impactful to see people who looked like me, how they were contributing to society and embracing the entirety of who they are. I learned a lot about Black culture and history through Black History Month celebrations at my local church and with my family in a way that was not necessarily taught in schools at the time.
