Fatherhood | Education | Empowerment

“My father wasn’t a part of my life… I didn’t meet him until I was 23.  But even then I embraced him.

From my experience, at a young age I vowed to be ‘a father.’ I want my daughters to have the advantages that are afforded with two parents. I want them to know what a father means so that when they start their own family they have a standard of what is a father. I want them to have a high standard for whoever they choose to be their partner and hold them accountable… all the things I didn’t have growing up.”
