My Story: Life
I’ve gone through many phases and seen many different things. I have run the gamut from being a “player” in my early days to finally settling down and experiencing the beauty and joy of marriage. Even though that union did not work out, it played a pivotal role in my growth.
Since then I’ve gained much maturity. I’ve searched for so many answers and found that writing brought me peace of mind and was therapeutic. It also provided an understanding of self and solutions to the great many things that perplexed my soul.
CommonTruce: Establishing Communication
Once I began to share my writings, the feedback and response were overwhelming. From that point on, I realized that sharing my experiences could help others in ways that I never dreamed possible.
Thus CommonTruce DMV in Washington, D.C. was born. It became a platform to discuss the very topics and situations that I wrote about consistently. It was important for me to give men and women an open forum to connect in efforts to re-establish communication.
Mediation: Finding Resolve
The patrons of CommonTruce are often very open-hearted and feel free to discuss their thoughts and concerns honestly. I saw an opportunity to expand my perspective and gain clarity from the complex and varying views of women and men as a whole.
It enabled and allowed me the unique vantage point to identify the exact point of disconnection. I started to pull the most commonly discussed topics during the events and address them in blogs.
Children are the legacies of the relationships we create. Serving and uplifting children will build the foundation needed to sustain community success for future generations to come.
Using CommonTruce DMV as the vehicle, we created the Professional Dress Workshop. PDW provides help in transitioning young boys into powerful professional men. With workshops built on the principles of love, elevate and resolve; We strengthen their sense of self-worth, confidence, and integrity.
Also, CommonTruce DMV serves the less fortunate by providing essential items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, towels, feminine hygiene and other similar products in a program called Outreach Run.
