At the age of 14, I started fundraising for Joint Aid Management through the power of music. I started hosting benefit concerts in my hometown of Detroit under the alias, Bands that JAM for Africa (btj4a.org). I believe music can be used as a mechanism for social change. Just buy a ticket, enjoy the show, and save a life.
My passion for music and social entrepreneurship led me to Belmont University where I studied Global Social Entrepreneurship with a focus on Africa.
I have travelled to South Africa to work with Joint Aid Management on short term projects and on Study Abroad with Belmont University. I always struggle to depart from this wonderful country. I could not be more thrilled to return! I am completely infatuated with the diversity of South Africa and trust that this adventure is going to reveal more unique stories and revelations that I look forward to sharing with you here!
