(The Village by the Sea) “As a native of Palm Beach County, a goal of mine is to give back to the community that supported and inspired me. Growing up with limited resources in a tough neighborhood did not deter me. Rather, it was the community that gave me strength and encouraged me to pursue my interests. I want to be a positive role model to young kids, like the role models I was lucky enough to have in my life.”
