"As a child, raised by my grandmother and growing up in public housing, I was fortunate enough to attend a youth development program. Not only keeping me engaged in many positive activities that were dually designed to support the community at large, the program shaped my perspective of myself, my ability to achieve my aspirations, and the value of my personal contribution to society. As a part of the program, I was instilled with many useful skills, most of which I still use today-both personally and professionally. This preparation positioned me to succeed in life and, knowing the impact the program had on my success, I hope to offer the the same opportunities to the youth of today", Dr. Tomekia Watson.
