Why are you passionate about what you do at CSI?

I am passionate about what I do at CSI because I get to be involved in work designed to disrupt some of the systems and cycles that have historically marginalized groups of people based on factors such as race, socioeconomic status, and geography. This experience is amplified by the fact that I get to work with people, both internal and external, who are just as passionate as I am about what they do!

 

What inspires you?

A constant source of inspiration for me is my journey as an immigrant who moved from Jamaica to America as a teen. This journey and everything that I have experienced to date inspires me to work in partnership with others to make the world more just and equitable, including the communities in which I live and work; to have a strong moral compass; to work hard; to be humble, to give back, to be kind; to be authentic; and to actively practice gratitude.

 

If you could offer advice to a younger version of yourself, what would you say?

The advice I would give my younger self is, try your very best to be intentional in all that you do and practice gratitude regardless of the season of life.
