Meet The Face Behind Promise of Greatness P.O.G.
I was born in Manhattan and raised in Rockland County, New York, and right from a young age, I knew life has its challenges and dealt with personal trauma on a regular basis. This is why I searched for meaning in my life going into human services, working as a bilingual advocate in a domestic violence shelter, in a mental health and substance abuse shelter, with criminal justice as a workforce development specialist as well as a resource coordinator in arraignments. Over the decade I worked in human services and guided hundreds of individuals. I have developed a gift of empowering people, thanks to my unique background, I can connect with people, making them feel comfortable and supported. As an individual, I believe what sets me apart from others is my passion for helping individuals in need, my compassionate approach, and the fact I don’t believe in giving up on people. I similarly strive to raise awareness and reverse the stigma and challenges faced by those seeking help.
I believe in giving back and making a legacy that will impact those around me. I am confident that in the future, I will continue to seek opportunities to change the lives of many by sharing my knowledge and impacting my community where resources aren’t always easily accessible. I don’t fail to envision my future and how I can continue to make a difference. I believe in justice and believe in advocacy for all who haven’t always had good representation. I have no doubt in my mind that I will continue to grow as a professional and utilize my experiences as my motivation behind everything I do. I am someone who moves with intention and strives for true success. It is this same motivation that has led me to become a founder of my own program, Promise of Greatness P.O.G. This program is only one of my many passions, but it is deep rooted with the passion for advocacy and resources. I am someone who understands the importance of policy, change and community. I believe in the strength and power of collaboration within legal representation, direct social service work and policy making.
The part of my program that I find most rewarding is being a part of individuals’ lives, helping make their burden lighter and, in effect, changing the world, one person at a time. I especially enjoy working with our youth, offering them the support they need to make wise decisions and build a prosperous future. With a vision based on that of the famous American philanthropist and founder of modern foster care, I hope to deliver the best care and support services within a simple framework that involves family involvement and integration.
I attribute my success to my fantastic team and their consistent dedication to our cause. Seeing my program go from strength to strength and the impact we have already had on our community has given me immense satisfaction over the years.
I have enjoyed sharing my story about the things that matter to me and how they influence my program.
