  • What is your "why"? Why do you do what you do?
    Leadership isn't about being in charge. It's about caring for those IN your charge. When I discovered that 1 out of 4 kids in Texas doesn't have food to eat on the weekends, I had to do something. Having grown up as a kid in similar circumstances, it became a mission to wipe out weekend hunger and build communities where every child has an equal chance at a great future.
