YouBeThe1.Org, Inc. was birthed from my passion for helping and serving humanity after investigating community psychological first aid, disaster ministry plans, and traumatology. As I reflect on my life, my mission statement has never wavered from my desire to educate, inspire, and motivate the masses to maximize their full potentials in life to avoid being held prisoner by their past.
