I haven’t used the tools application much but I’m positive it has all the info I need to become more familiar with this application.
I’m inspired by young people and their willingness to assist in teaching others new and exciting technology and the patience they have with everyone who is willing to learn.
We're based in Gretna,FL. where I consider our community to be a very fine one where there are limited access to a lot of different things as it relates to technology but we strive to be a community of love and service to each other and surrounding communities as well.

Advancing the DREAM
|Advancing the DREAM - What it means to me||
I am not pleased to say but health care for minorities are far from that of those on the other side of the tracks. It’s not just African Americans but also those who were not born with a silver spoon and sadly it may be another long time coming for equity in health care provisions for minorities to become a reality.
|My Action Pledge to Advance the DREAM?||
In order to advance the dream I would have to obviously become more knowledgeable as it relates to the modern technology of health care. The advanced tools and services that are provided to our surrounding communities are essential in the progression of our very own community moving forward and embracing healthy living. The more you know, the more you grow!
