Sharing my story while making you a character in it

Sharing my story while making you a character in it

 

Everyone has a story, and I’m here to shine light on those stories…

When my father Moses passed away on March 8, 2017, my world changed forever. I reflected on my dad’s story, from having his education torn away from him due to resistance to racial integration in Prince Edward County, Virginia, to beating the odds as a Harvard Business School graduate and a social entrepreneur. I couldn’t escape the fact that his powerful story, of turning lemons into lemonade, was largely left untold. Taking a step back, I see this is no surprise. In today’s world, it’s common that the stories of change makers are overlooked. Through 180º of Impact and my other work in the “digital storytelling” space, I’ve committed myself to telling those stories far and wide - already reaching hundreds of millions since the start of my career in 2012. I would love the chance to share my story with you.
