My Story

My childhood was hectic; I split it between North Carolina with my dad and Washington, D.C. with my mom. I was more influenced by DC's urban environment because the fast pace of the city was appealing to me. North Carolina's rural scene bored me, but being in a predominantly white area was valuable.
