My journey with Habitat for Humanity started over thirteen years ago in Pacoima, California where my friends and I volunteered our weekends with Habitat and witnessed first-hand Habitat’s unique model around sweat equity (a hand up, not a handout) to provide affordable housing. I am passionate about leading the talented HYP NYC board, transforming the lives of hard-working New Yorkers in need of affordable housing, and advocating on behalf of these communities in partnership with government agencies and philanthropic donors.

Service has always been an important part of my life, from the work my parents did in West Africa when I was growing up to my involvement in community service during college. I feel like whatever your day job is, there’s always a way to leave the world a better place than it was before. I joined HYP NYC because I believe strongly in Habitat NYC’s mission of transforming lives and communities by building and preserving quality, affordable homes with families in need, and by uniting New Yorkers around the cause of affordable housing – and I want to do whatever I can to support it.

Since I was little, I’ve always had a deep desire to be of service to others. Now, having fought hard to be in this city and it giving me so much in return, I wanted to be able to give back to my community, and give those individuals around me the helping hand they need to thrive.
