I worked on dozens of cases throughout the Deep South. Hard to put an exact number on those that I saved, but I remember vividly those who I could not. That is why I continue the work that I do.

I cannot read this question without thinking of the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela. He was able to stay positive about his own life and the future of his country from behind prison walls for 27 years. I draw my inspiration from him and other lesser known heroes.

I enjoy meeting young people around the country and world who are passionate about human rights. I am excited in my new gig to be able to connect activists across the globe, connecting for example LGBT activists here with those in Uganda.
