About

I pray for and encourage the ladies of the Ursinus College Gospel Choir Voices in Praise as Chaplain.

As a volunteer teacher at Montgomery County Correctional Facility (MCCF) I help teach Adult Basic Education (ABE) courses to the men and (GED) courses to the women every week and get to make a positive impact in the lives of inmates.  

Research

I conduct Independent Research with Dr. Goldsmith. My literary blog Jada & Jessie is a continuation of my Summer Fellows research. With the blog I research the Harlem Renaissance and it’s authors specifically Jessie Fauset whose life I am trying to uncover and bring to light.
