I am passionate about:
equipping marginalized young adult family caregivers with the tools they need to successfully care for loved one's with dementia and themselves.
A little known fact about me is:
that I did not like to read as a child but committed to making reading a priority this year and have read five books this year, just for fun!

Our Turn 2 Care
"I was designed to make a difference."
I'm a founder, storyteller, content creator, and caregiver on a quest to equip other millennial caregivers with the information, resources, and support they need to care for their loved ones. I want to do my part to speak up for the Baby Boomers who will be overwhelmingly afflicted with dementia in the next decade, and the Millennials who love them.
When I am not fighting for dementia and caregiving awareness with Our Turn 2 Care, the Business Operations Manager for lifestyle site The Black Expat, and a published freelance writer.
Your scope makes a lot of sense considering the limited awareness and resources. Perhaps there is a way to partner with programs in developed nations in order to fund evangelism efforts in India, Africa, and other developing nations. I would love to stay in touch, so please feel free to contact me via email at email@example.com!
So many people are ignorant to the behaviors associated with dementia. Making business owners, clerks, waiters, and others with whom dementia patients and their families interact aware of these challenges is such a difficult task, but I believe The Compassion Box could be of great help!
Is The Compassion Box available outside of India or do you have plans for expansion?
