Community Service 

I have been a public servant all of my life. I remember visiting nursing homes with my mother and grandmother who are both nurses. I would spend hours and days playing games with residents, building connections with them. I loved volunteering so much that my 13th birthday party was hosted at a rehabilitation house for patients with HIV/AIDS. From there, I volunteered all throughout high school and college at soup kitchens, domestic violence asylums, day cares and hospitals. I have volunteered for the following organizations: 

  • JumpStart for Kids (Washington, DC)

  • Jericho Road (Buffalo, NY)

  • AmeriCorps VISTA (Buffalo, NY)

  • Niagara Lutheran Church Home (Buffalo, NY)

  • Justice for Juniors (Washington, DC)

  • Howard University Alternative Spring Break (Washington, DC, Belle Glade, Florida, St.Louis, Misouri, Accra, Ghana)

  • Miss America Organization (Buffalo, NY)

  • Buffalo City Hall (Buffalo, NY)

  • EforAll (Buffalo, NY)

  • Meals on Wheels (Niagara Falls, NY)

  • Cornerstone Manor (Buffalo, NY)

  • Buffalo City Mission (Buffalo, NY)

  • Yes Prep Public Charter Schools (Houston, TX)

  • Buffalo Urban League (Buffalo, NY)

  • Erie County Medical Center (Buffalo, NY)

  • Benedict House (Buffalo, NY)

  • Howard University Student Association (Washington, DC)

  • LightHouse Women's Shelter (Buffalo, NY)

Alternative Spring Break- Accra, Ghana, Belle Glade, Florida, St. Louis, Missouri

Alternative Spring Break is an opportunity for college students to spend their spring break volunteering. During my time at Howard University, I got to participate in ASB three times, traveling to St.Louis, Belle Glade, and Accra, respectively. On these service trips, I met many people from different walks of life, taught in detention centers, schools and clinics for at-risk youth and women.

Miss Buffalo 2022

The Miss America Organization is a traditional pageant competition that awards over $6 million in scholarships to young women every year. I had the honor of winning the Miss Buffalo 2022 title, serving as a representative of the city I love. As Miss Buffalo, I partnered with schools, organizations and businesses to bring OYE to as many places in the city of Buffalo as possible.


AmeriCorps VISTA

The AmeriCorps VISTA program is federally recognized as a full year of volunteer service. During this year, I worked in Buffalo City Hall as a communications and marketing intern. I was able to work with local leadership, organizations and block clubs to organize resourceful programming throughout the city.
