What does being a Great Futures Gala Honoree mean to you?
Through my selection as a Great Futures Gala Honoree, I hope to show children everywhere that they can achieve more than they can imagine with hard work, perseverance, and a support system.
Where did you grow up?
Just outside of Cleveland, Ohio.
Why do you feel it's important to give back?
I believe we all have a responsibility to make our world a better place. My work has been mostly in arts and education nonprofits as I believe in the power of both to change lives.
