How do you use your platform as an influencer to spread “What’s Good” to the world and who have you impacted?

With my platform, Backpack buddies I feel like I give these children a chance to have food to eat that they may not have at home every day. I hope that this gives them JOY and also HOPE that someone cares. Maybe one day these children will be able to help others as well.

What are some projects that you are currently working on or promoting?

I continue to work on my Backpacks and distribute to children. I try to sponsor a child through No Kid Hungry on a national basis. I try to encourage others to do the same.

Who do you credit for your success?

I credit God first and foremost and my motto is : I  can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Second I credit my family who have been by my side emotionally and financially. My pageant coach Angela Hardin and my Directors Renee McNair Austin, Sharon McGinnis, Stevie Barton Knight and Stephi Barton Williams, I cannot thank them enough for their support and help.
