“My Mother was determined that I go to college and be a teacher. I accomplished that twice in my lifetime. Elementary and Special Ed teacher before Law School and Adjunct Professor at my alma mater, Howard University School of Law for ten years.”

“My mother is probably the most important, if not the most important person in my life. Here’s the thing about my mom, I was not the best child there was in the world and I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it was not for my mother. She not only believed in me but she had patience, she loved me unconditional. My dad was the fairest person I ever met in the world, but my mom loved me unconditional. It didn’t matter what I did what other people said, nothing could change it, no body could say anything bad about her child. She just loved me and she made sure, even until this day, she supports me. She’s great. I love my mommy.”

“When I think of my mother, I think of unconditional love, constant nurturing, and timely encouragement. She performed a major role in shaping who I am today, and she remains a powerful role model for how to foster real qualitative personal growth and development in another human being!”
