Q: What do you do exactly?

A: Director of Residential Services at Visions and Pathways
49 Brahma Avenue

Q: Why do you do that?

A: To assist with housing homeless youth (ages of 13 -21 yo)

Q: Most ridicule moment you had to face? An interesting or fun anecdote you’ve encountered in your work that you’d like to share.

A: If a neglected, abused or homeless youth has one person in their lives that believe in them, support them and show love to them they can become successful in life.

A: People judge you by appearance or by your life situation without getting to know you. I would advise people to always meet people where they are in life and give a helping hand when needed. It is better to give than to receive.

Q: What separates you from the rest? Why you? Is there a reason you couldn’t join a similar existing organization? Are they not skilled or professional enough to address the problems you had to face.
