D has chosen to bring her talents to the Boys & Girls Club because she always enjoys giving back to the youth. Her mother was a social worker pretty much all of her career and D has been around kids all her life, and always wanted to give back. She wants to help teach and develop our youth of today. D feels as though her background as a basketball coach and a black female entrepreneur that she has a lot to offer our young people.
