I am an FII Fellow, helping other low-income families achieve their goals through their connections and resources by provide information and making connections between them. With this experience, I have learned that without connections, you cannot do much and with someone guiding you, you can do anything.

I have faced many experiences and many struggles. I have also had a lot of support from many people and this was due to the connections I had. FII has helped me in many ways and I think I have to use my knowledge and connections to help others in the struggle for social justice of any kind and to be independent of any individual.

Education has always been important to me to create a difference in my community. It is not the education of school but the education of what your community needs. In Citizen University, you meet so many people from different organizations that unite in this event to share their achievements. It gave me hope that I can also make the difference my community. The sessions also provided me with the tools I need to continue fighting for social justice.
