Program Director, The Center for Teen Empowerment
What brings you here?
I'm involved with TNGV because I remember crying my eyes out on the final days of school knowing that it may be the last time I saw some of my closest friends. This wasn't because I thought they might move or go to different schools the following school year. It was because when I was 6 a friend of mine was shot and killed by a stray bullet over the summer and I never saw him again. That memory drives me to end gun violence everywhere for good.
