Your children will become what you are. So be what you want them to be.


It is truly my honor to serve as the 27th Chapter President for the Miami Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Incorporated, a premiere cultural development organization for Black families that focuses on the educational betterment and ecumenical well-being of our children. Since October 1962, the Miami Chapter has continued to build a rich legacy of love through leadership development, cultural enrichment, and civic and social exposure in our children through quality programming and community service.
