Professional Goals & Objectives

Throughout my life I have been a Non-conformist so I truly relate to the underdog because I know what & how they feel. This is why I advocate for blockchain technology. I believe in equality and that’s why I got into blockchain. It is the technology that is the enabler and has the power to democratize society and break all social and racial barriers – in other words the community serves itself – a system that “runs by the people for the people”. My vision is to create a true equalizer – everyone from any community has access to equal opportunities. ​
