You taught us the power of using your platform for impact. From the very beginning you vocalized the issues deeply rooted in your community that held a lot of people back. You used your voice and resources to give the people in your community hope. You gave them resources so they too could have a chance to prosper from their circumstances.
In a deeply troubling political time for the nation, you saw the pain in other communities and stood up for them. You gave us hope that we were not alone in feeling this experience by acknowledging our value and calling for Black and Brown unity.
