My Legacy

Founding Consciously Exposed was just one step I have taken to elevate the rights of marginalized people and communities in the United States. My workshops, seminars, lectures, and community-building events have been a successful way of improving human rights. As such, I have helped create more empathetic, equitable, and prosperous communities by enabling companies to elevate the cultural intelligence of diverse consumers.

My Achievements

I use an artistic approach to advance the causes of social justice and social issues and grow community building while investigating social determinants of mental health. I was the keynote address speaker and featured writer at the Bridgewater International Poetry Festival in 2017.

I have held diverse events, including arts/culture, entrepreneurship events, in which I bridged cultural inequities and political gaps between members of:

  • African Diaspora Groups
  • State Officials
  • Academics
  • Faith Leaders
  • Business Communities

I assisted these communities to achieve:

  • Cross-Cultural Understanding
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Building Healthy Communities
  • Improved Mental Health 
  • Betterment Programs for Communities (of African Descent in the United States)

I have spent 10 years professionally collaborating with:

      • Various Organizations
      • Universities And Leaders (of African Descent)
