My first trip to New York and taste of the city’s advertising scene was because I was named one of AAF's Most Promising Minority Students as a college senior. As soon as I got here, I knew this was where I wanted to end up. I may not have had that chance if it weren't for people and organizations who make it a priority to improve inclusion in our industry. That's something that's motivated me during my career so far, and it's something I try to also extend to my work. I believe the stories we can tell are only as diverse as the voices we have to tell them. In my own work, I try to use any chance I have to work on projects that can go beyond marketing and make a positive contribution towards our society. Sometimes it's as big as a campaign that gets millions talking and sometimes it's as small as a casting choice. There are so many decisions we make along the creative process that are an opportunity to help reframe the way people see the world and fellow people.
