I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to speak about 100 Suits on such a great National platform! Mr. Harvey could not have been more kind to me and my sister Tanisha, who accompanied me on the trip. It was so gracious of him to donate 100 suits from his Steve Harvey Collection clothing line.
Words cannot express how humbling it is to help others and in turn have others help you bring your dream to fruition. I thank everybody that helped me from the beginning to now.
At Lourdes Medical Center, I spoke with the community and community leaders of Camden, NJ about the power of community engagement. Afterwards, we held a 100 Suits pop up shop at the Camden Store. 100 Suits thanks Ajeenah Riggs of the Camden Store, Chris Hampton, Andre "Myster HOPE" Spruel of (HOPE) HELPING OTHER PEOPLE EAT, the numerous volunteer barbers, the mentors that showed up and helped out, letting us help those in need, and a special shout out to Camden County Police Lt. Zsakhiem James for protecting and serving with honor.
