Supporting this foundation is very personal to me as I grew up in Uganda and Kenya. I have personally seen the need. My mother was an educator and I was raised with her belief that education has the potential to be the equalizer in a world where wealth, status, and race creates much inequality in opportunity. She opened a school where people paid whatever they could and I learned a great deal from her efforts. My sister, a physician and life coach, and her son introduced me to the Nia Children’s Foundation and I am grateful for this incredible opportunity to help make this world a better place.
