"There has always been a fire in me to give back to communities who are destined for success, but may not have the resources just yet.  Bpeace seemed like the perfect way to use the skills I've learned along the way for a good cause, while still being able to manage work and life back at home. Thank you for assembling such a talented and passionate network, Bpeace."
