"I have deep roots here in New Jersey. I was born at St. Peter’s Hospital in New Brunswick and raised in Montclair. I’ve lived on the same street my entire life, despite the rising cost of living and nearly losing my childhood home to foreclosure. When I was young, my mother supported our family as a preschool teacher in East Orange and Newark while raising me as a single parent. Our family’s story is the same as countless other families trying to make it in New Jersey. Struggling to make it in a system that remains stacked in favor of those with political connections and wealth, we’ve fought to ensure our place in this state.
With my community’s support, I was able to attend Howard University and New York University. Still — and like so many of us — I had to take on nearly $500k in student loan debt just so that I could achieve my dream of becoming an attorney for the public interest."
