I'm an environmental justice activist, community organizer, working-class Angeleno.

When I was seven, my father was detained by ICE and had to go back to Nigeria. To make ends meet, my mother withdrew from college and worked full time as a nurse and I started working part-time jobs in high school and throughout college. We lived in rent-controlled housing and relied on public assistance to get by.​ However, it was my mom's example of having a strong work ethic, determination.
