I am passionate about serving with Community in Schools of Thomasville because it has been ingrained in me to give back. When I was younger, my mother made it mandatory for me to learn the importance of helping and serving others without expecting anything in return! Being able to serve others under the CIS umbrella has added great value to my life. I was taught that “It is possible to serve your way to SUCCESS!”

Thomasville is my hometown. Outside of going to college, I have been here my whole life. This is why I am passionate about the work we do at CIS. I get to help the people of my hometown get better and grow.

I believe in instilling the principles of peace and success that life has taught me back into my community.
