From a young age, I’ve always had a sense of motivation and passion driving me forward. Whether it’s exploring unique opportunities, learning additional skills, or meeting new people, I bring these values to every experience throughout my life on a personal and professional level. My personal interests include singing, drawing and modeling. I'm currently a high school senior at Denby, and heavily involved in an amazing program called Detroit Food Academy.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DFA
The DFA Fellowship is the last stage of the program. Students involved in the program have the opportunity to work with both DFA and local partners! I am currently a fellow and run a DFA stand at the Wayne State Market.
As a student in the Advanced Cohort, I was able to further my cooking knowledge, entrepreneurial spirit and learned communication skills and learned how to interact with a variety of people.
The After-School program is the first stage in the DFA program. We learned basic cooking skills, entrepreneurship and essential practices when preparing food.
