Literacy Saved My Life!

As a child, I felt lost and alone. I was an awkward little kid who loved reading and writing and even at a young age, there was something powerful about language and vocabulary that made me feel special and opened up a new world for me.

I believe that all life was created for purpose on purpose. It is only when we become equipped, encouraged, and empowered with the knowledge of who we are, what we are capable of, and why we are here that we can really find joy, fulfillment, and purpose in our lives.

The hidden power that unlocks the key to personal destiny can be found through the power of literacy. I believe every child can read, write, and speak their way into a transformed life that has meaning, and value and that "empowered life" can one day make a difference in the world. I'm on a mission to teach children the POWER of their words and how they can use language and literacy to be whatever they want to be!

Literacy to Life: Mission
To use the (hidden) power of literacy to equip, encourage and empower a generation and culture to live their best lives, to its fullest potential, and make a difference in the lives of others.


Literacy to Life: Vision
To offer Language & Literacy-Based programs and services that provide a gateway for youth to gain the knowledge, skills, and ability that is necessary to fulfill one's basic human desire; to be loved, known, and accepted. I want children to know that what they have to say matters!


Literacy to Life: Goal
My ultimate desire is to, "Train the Next Generation of Literate Leaders." This is accomplished through three (3) core beliefs. All children can:

1.     Read their way to a new life.

2.     Write their way to a successful life.

3.     Speak their way to a fulfilled life.
