I help parents and others teach children that diversity is dope.
Diversity has had a big influence in my personal experiences, pursuits and growth. Truth is I am an African American woman living in the United States. Also, I have lived in many cities: Miami, Newark, Dallas, Sacramento, Dayton, Houston, Orlando and New Orleans. Many of these cities are a nexus for unique culture, diversity, and ethnic discovery. Furthermore, I continue to have a strong desire to explore, discover, travel and immerse myself in a variety of cultures including my own. Consequently, due to these experiences and these ambitions, I hope to promote, encourage and facilitate this acceptance and enthusiasm for diversity in my own children as well as others.

INSPIRING COMMUNITIES TO BRING DIGNITY AND HOPE TO YOUTH IN FOSTER CARE
On any given day, there are approximately 437,500 children in foster care in the United States. Most of them are removed from their homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. If they do have any personal belongings, they are given a trash bag in which to carry them.
At Comfort Cases, we believe that every child deserves to feel a sense of dignity. Every child deserves to pack their belongings in a special bag that they can call their very own. Every child deserves to have a cozy new pair of pajamas, a brand new warm blanket, and a new stuffed animal to hug during the traumatic transition into foster care.
