A special thank you @mbusa @mercedesbenz for allowing me to test drive my childhood dream car. It was a wonderful experience working with your team. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my story. I hope it will inspire someone to dream big.

As a child from #uganda I never dreamed that I would be featured in a @mercedesbenz @mbusa production. I am truly humbled. This snippet will debut tomorrow in front of thousands at the @atlantafalcons vs @greenbaypackers game. #RiseUp
I wont be at the game, so if you happen to be there please take a picture and tag me.

On this day hate rose It's ugly head in NYC, the fields of Pennsylvania and DC. Violence against innocence never wins the hearts and minds. It drives them away. You don't have to be violent to make a point. 9/11 reminds us of this critical lesson. Remembering the victims of 911 on this day.

A week ago my school went to The Center for Civil and Human rights where we had the pleasure to hear from the esteemed Mr Derrek Kayongo, CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights, founder of the Global Soap Project, and a refugee who worked all of his way to become the great man that he is today. While I aspire to attain a fashion sense as amazing as his, I more truly aspire to be half the man of positive and forward thinking change that Mr Kayongo is. Thank you so much for welcoming our university to the Center for Civil and Human Rights, we saw history in ways that some of us had never seen or experienced before and you truly broadened all of our perspectives, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

P.S. Yes, lol my tie clip is way out of alignment and my hair looks wacky and I'm standing all weird, just please consider how happy I was to shake this man's hand and please find it in your hearts to pardon me 😂

Have you ever tried not to laugh, when someone else was laughing, and it made you laugh even harder ? Good times with President Carter. #39 #AmendingAmerica @usnatarchives #carterlibrary
