2019-20 MBK Fellow

Albany High School

 

If you could use 2-3 words to describe MBK, what would they be?

Motivational, helpful, and courageous 

 

How has being involved in MBK impacted you?

Involvement with MBK has influenced me to be conscious about how other people live their lives being a black male in America. This program showed me that no matter your upbringing, the color of your skin will always define you no matter where you go and our goal is to show the world that shouldn’t be the case.

 

What do you look forward to most as a 2019-20 MBK Fellow?

I’m looking forward to soaking up everyone’s outlook on life so that I can be whoever I want to be as long as I put my mind to it. It takes a very long time to find yourself in life but you hinder yourself by believing you can’t achieve anything because of the color of your skin and/or upbringing because 9 times out of 10, you can beat the odds.
