A Bit About Me

ABEN was created for the advancement of Black children, focusing on our great histories, traditions, and language. I am passionate about the work I do with ABEN because my career in science education also centers on the social, emotional, and educational excellence of Black children.

Not only were my grandparents my first science teachers, they also taught me to draw and paint.
