I would like to take a moment to share a bit about my background and why I am thrilled to serve as the organization’s inaugural leader. I’ve spent my entire career nurturing, motivating and empowering young people globally. Now, as the executive director, I can serve educators, families and friends of boys and men across the globe. We are ambitious because we are hopeful!
I witnessed and experienced many of the challenges and tragedies that boys often face in our culture. Staying focused was never easy, but I had a few angels along the way, including teachers and administrators who chose to go beyond their job description to ensure at least one young man it to the next level. I am forever grateful.
I went to High school in a place where every other student are boys and we do everything expected of boys, we model our lives with everything we see on the streets and neighbourhood. We never had positive influences we can talk to imbibe positive moral values.
