What: I am a podcaster that highlights entrepreneurs and individuals that are impacting their communities in a good way! I tell their stories, who they are and what it is they do – and their journey leading up to it. I support and promote community – via efforts and or through my platform! No achievement is to small or to big to talk about.
When: 3rd weekend of every month, 3 interview releases.
Who: Anyone that has a project that helps the surrounding neighborhoods they live in (clean ups, toy drives, food drives, and or an entrepreneur that services our communities w a product or service)
Why: Many times time goes by and we see great pillars of the community do amazing things. At times we also hear stories about the Greats before our time that have paved the way for us. Many are the instances were we do not get an opportunity to highlight our neighborhood role models. That is why I have dedicated my time to have a platform where everyone is heard and has that space to speak their truth and achievements. We owe it to ourselves, our community, and our ancestors to stand up and let our voices be heard!
