I have grown up and lived my entire life in Eastern North Carolina, and I have seen firsthand the struggles our community faces. I am a mom of three boys, a founder of an incarceration re-entry non profit, and someone who has fought every day to stand up for my neighbors. As a young black woman in the south, I know that the American dream has not always been in reach. But I am running because I believe the American dream can be achieved for all of us. If we have representatives on our side, we can make history – together.
This Country was built and continues to grow on the foundation of the American Dream. We can live up to this dream, but we must come together and close the gap between promises made and actions delivered. I am not a typical politician, but Eastern North Carolina runs deep in my veins and I want to amplify our voices and work to fix our problems. I will not give you false promises or political rhetoric but I will ensure that our rights are all upheld for each and every Eastern North Carolinian. We are entitled to rights that make and shape us. The American Dream is yours, and I will work to defend it.
