Every generation needs someone who will care enough, and who is selfless enough to educate them on the hard things of this world.
And while often many youth think they need to turn to athletes and artists for inspiration it’s people like Omari Ajanaku who remind them that there are people in your own community to look to for not only resources but inspiration.
