CEO/Founder Of The Organization

I am the Founder of ITSUITSYOU.ORG

I created ITSUITSYOU for one reason and one reason only; to create avenues for economically challenged males to get back on their feet.

ITSUITSYOU partner with other non-profits and organizations that provide life skills and other important skills needed to move forward to gain a living wage.

ITSUITSYOU provide suits and associated attire to males for interview purposes, graduation, religious services, etc.

Currently the populations that we service are Veterans, High School/College graduates, ex-Offenders, former homeless, former substance abuse users, and more.

In the summer of 2015 ITSUITSYOU started a pilot program called Project Survival.

Project Survival is a Free Summer Basketball league created to fill a void that was needed.

There were very few free organized summer basketball programs for the summer.

ITSUITSYOU was able to raise enough funds from the community and sponsors to cover 144 children for the 2015 Summer League.

I am advocate for education, change, empowerment and leadership. I believe in equipping yourself with the right tools to move forward and to be productive and marketable.

My valued core competencies are Leading Change, Continual Learning, Leading People, Results Driven, Strong Business Acumen and Building Coalitions and assist with building strong family units.

 

My favorite quotes:

Success is not forever, and failure isn’t fatal.

Nothing stays the same.

A mediocre person tells. A good person explains. A superior person demonstrates. A great person inspires others to see for themselves!
