I'm a product of the Southbridge section of Wilmington, Delaware -- growing up on D Street as a kid,I had access to a fully functional park where I could play and swim, but today's youth aren't able to have the same experience. Not being able to go back to the place where so many great memories were formed is what inspired me to reach back to this generation.
I would like to bring a positive event to the Wilmington community August 13th at Bancroft Elementary School with 100 pairs of my KKKG sneakers to give away being the draw. As a young, Black entrepreneur, I hope to ignite today's youth with the idea that they can also create, empower, and inspire each other with their ideas, talents, and abilities to create change along with opportunities to reach back to their communities despite their circumstances.
Back-to-school season can be a stressful time for parents and children. Nothing makes a student feel better than new shoes and school supplies. As a co-sponsor, you can play a part in helping students start the school year on solid footing. You would also benefit from the public exposure and great media coverage surrounding a monumental venture such as this. Join me on this journey with some special guests!
