I want to personally say, "Thank You!" for supporting Be The Light.
For many years, I have had a special place in my heart for connecting with teenagers and young adults from disadvantaged backgrounds who are motivated to reach their full potential and make a difference in the world. Amazing individuals like this can benefit not just from financial resources, but also from forming connections with peers or mentors who are excited to dream alongside them and assist them in executing their vision.
I have spent the past 7 years informally working with adolescents who have benefited from help the tricky transition from adolescence into young adulthood. Through my own my own personal life experiences, my parenting experience, and being a part of the lives of so many amazing individuals through my work at my treatment centers, I am convinced that the period of time from 12-25 is a time when help from an adult who has been through such experiences, can make an enormous impact!
Individuals often have talent, passion, and vision often do not have needed financial resources and the guidance and direction needed to help them successfully navigate this critical stage of development. During this time, youth often need help with the college entrance process, SAT and ACT preparatory tutoring, disability evaluations and academic accommodation, career guidance, emotional and sometimes psychiatric support, college visits, and career planning post college. I have been blessed to encounter, and have found a tremendous need in so many deserving young people, and I am dedicated to helping others in a way that can leave an lasting impact and I am at the point now, where I want to formalize this process so that more can be done for more people!
In August of 2018, and then during the first two weeks of 2019, I had an incredible journey to Nigeria and met with an ambitious group of kids. I had the great opportunity to discuss their futures and help them identify short- and long-term goals, including possible career paths. Among the group, there is a potential doctor, pilot, lawyer, mechanical engineer, auto mechanic, and artist, plus prospective tailors, shoemakers, and barbers! Be the Light is providing study materials for the college admission test and pairing each of the kids with a mentor. My goal is to also provide scholarships for those who will go on to college, and facilitate trade apprenticeships for those who won’t.
Be The Light Charitable Foundation’s mission is to provide tangible resources that foster opportunities for underserved children and young adults that will help lead to greater economic security and a fulfilling future in which they can manifest their potential.
If my foundation’s mission is something that speaks to you, I would love for you to get involved! We are seeking financial support and are also eager to form our board of directors. If you’d like more information, please contact us
I want to add that I hope we all can strive to find meaning in this new beginning and new year. Connecting around this cause is something I am looking forward to!
