2019-20 MBK Fellow

Ithaca High School

 

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

Brotherhood, love, and support.

 

How has being involved in MBK impacted you?

MBK has impacted me in becoming a leader for my peers, bettering myself, allowing me to meet new people with similar mindsets as me and allowing me to meet successful Black men.

 

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

What I look forward to the most about MBK in 2019-20 as a Fellow, is to get more active in MBK, learn more about MBK, and take my leadership skills to the next level. Hopefully the sessions and being a Fellow can help me run our Boyz2Men group in our high school and be a mentor to the kids in the school. I want to be able to support or just talk to kids that struggle in high school, because I needed that when I was a freshman, sophomore and even a junior. It’s good to hear from parents and your elders but hearing from your peers and kids that are around your age that you look up to is even better. So for me, I want to become a overall better leader and someone people can talk to.
