What does being a father mean to you?

Fatherhood is my opportunity to give my Young Kings and Godbabies, the influence that was provided for me through our village of Uncles, Godparents, and my brother’s Dad.

Describe your experience with your father growing up and how that impacted you today.
Not having my biological Father around, made me want to be present 1000% times more in the lives of our children. It also helped to build the desire to teach so many, the lessons that I am learning throughout life.

What things did you take from your experience growing up into your own fatherhood journey?

Key things we are teaching our young Kings and Queens, are exploring your emotion and how to communicate this correctly. I did not do this often and felt that it was unnecessary to do growing up.

Have you had any obstacles on your fatherhood journey?

I have had to address my own patience, fears, and doubts.

What advice would you give others new on their fatherhood journey?

Enjoy the Small and Early moments of your child’s life and travel to show them what ia possible.
