First and foremost I want to think Mercedes for allowing me to use her organization to be the vessel where I can give back. I've always wanted to have an organization to be able to help my community but it just hasn't come into fruition. Maybe because I'm not ready or it's just not my path but it doesn't stop me from sowing my seeds of helping, right?! When I got reacquainted with Mercedes I was affected by her tenacity and drive when it came to making a difference. Seeing how she's made a difference and a positive influence with her community and the people around her really gave me inspiration.
