What inspires you to do this work?

Young people that don’t recognize their own potential. The misled and misunderstood.

DCYF’s tagline is “Making San Francisco a Great Place to Grow Up.” Do you believe this? Tell us why.

Yes. I have benefited from the vast resources that San Francisco has to offer, both as a child growing up and as a parent.

Is there a song or anthem that inspires your grind or motivates you to serve our communities?

Yes! “Where You Can Find Me” by Laroo, and of course “The Grind” by Erykah Badu.
