Honored by the Tavis Smiley Foundation

On Saturday October 4th, 2008 I flew to Los Angeles California to accept the 2008 Emerging Youth Leadership Award from The Tavis Smiley Foundation at its 2008 Salute to Youth Leadership Benefit. This award is given to “alumni member of the [Tavis Smiley] Youth to Leaders program who has demonstrated drive and determination toward becoming a leader.” I’m extremely humble to receive an honor from such a great foundation and from a individual whose contributions to our nation’s social fabric, I greatly admire, Tavis Smiley.
