I am so very excited and humbled to be elected as President of U C Berkeley’s Black Alumni Association. It is an honor to be of service to both alumni and students.

I am looking for opportunities to strengthen BAA and leverage our collective social, political and economic power for all of our alumni; both near and far. I truly believe there is strength in numbers and welcome all to become a member of BAA. We are now a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and are seeking corporate and private donations to support our programming. Please stay tuned as we build out our strategic plan for 2018-2020.
