There are so many people doing good work today in our world. Today, I want to recognize one of those people. Meet Sheila Morovati. She collects delicately used crayons from restaurants and partners up with local schools to distribute them. She was able to divert items headed to the trash and create an entire Art Program that brings creativity back into classrooms. Keep up the great work @crayoncollection

A special thank you @mbusa@mercedesbenz for allowing me to test drive my childhood dream car. It was a wonderful experience working with your team. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my story. I hope it will inspire someone to dream big.
On this day hate rose It's ugly head in NYC, the fields of Pennsylvania and DC. Violence against innocence never wins the hearts and minds. It drives them away. You don't have to be violent to make a point. 9/11 reminds us of this critical lesson. Remembering the victims of 911 on this day.
lol! Your tie clip is brilliant. You have a bright future ahead of you. #Repost@alexander.graydon.ray
A week ago my school went to The Center for Civil and Human rights where we had the pleasure to hear from the esteemed Mr Derrek Kayongo, CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights, founder of the Global Soap Project, and a refugee who worked all of his way to become the great man that he is today. While I aspire to attain a fashion sense as amazing as his, I more truly aspire to be half the man of positive and forward thinking change that Mr Kayongo is. Thank you so much for welcoming our university to the Center for Civil and Human Rights, we saw history in ways that some of us had never seen or experienced before and you truly broadened all of our perspectives, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
P.S. Yes, lol my tie clip is way out of alignment and my hair looks wacky and I'm standing all weird, just please consider how happy I was to shake this man's hand and please find it in your hearts to pardon me #centerforcivilandhumanrights#atlanta#atl#peace#love#positivity#oglethorpeuniversity#ogletag#blacklivesmatter
