As the national conversation of The State of Black America continues to make tremendous advancements in the pursuit of equity on the hill; our voice, as young professionals is essential to movement as the leaders for generations now and forever.

 

I strongly believe the true measure of our success as our organization is built on the impact made by our local chapters. If elected, I will further contribute my expertise in brand development and media production to help chapters jump start their marketing strategies by providing tools and resources to help maximize their results.

 

With your support and vote, we will make the NULYP brand bigger and stronger than ever!
